The USB drive is poised to replace the now aging 'floppy' diskette. This does not mean that USB drives, like floppy drives have the same shape. No, in fact some are very whimsical or even considered 'wacky' (drives with very unusual shapes). Below are some "Wacky drives" that were found on the Internet.

Combined with eComstation, these devices will allow you to have a truely customized and unique personal computer.
And have some fun! (smile)

iDuck

The 'rubber ducky' of USB drives. It is the rubber ducky for computer users. When plugged in, the drive lights up.

While not exactly 'wacky', it has the potential to be.

FlashBag Drive

An USB drive that shows how much free space there by inflating or deflating its size. While not 'wacky', it is unusual in the way it shows how much free space there is. http://www.plusminus.ru/flashbag.html

USB Pie Drive

A USB drive for those who love pie with their computers.

Ninja & MimoBot Drive

Plush Gator Drive

These are some of the more unusual USB drives (at least the ones that I could find oline). There could be many more. Fortunately eComStation has support for USB mass storage. These (and others) should (at least in theory) work with the latest USB drivers for OS/2 and eComStation.
