Ridiculously Expensive USB (flash) Drive costs $1,990

USB drives are generally unremarkable from the outside — little more than sticks made out of pedestrian materials like plastic and metal.

If you need your USB drives to make more of a statement (and be ridiculously expensive), consider the Apophis, from Polish firm Zana Design. The outer case is made of rare 200-year-old black African wood with either silver or 18-karat gold and, for extra flair, chunks of 4.5-billion-year-old meteorite.

Zana says that the name Apophis refers to the near-Earth asteroid that was once thought to have a slight chance of hitting Earth in 2029. (Don’t worry; we’re safe.)

The Apophis has a storage capacity of 64 GB and a reading speed of 190 MB/s. The silver version costs $1,130 and the gold version, $1,990. Both come with a lifetime guarantee.
