Who says that USB flash drives have to be simple little plastic items designed for carrying around data? ZaNa Design certainly doesn't think so. As such, it's launched a thumb drive called the Apophis that starts at US$1,100 and is made with authentic and certified meteorite.
Of course, just being made with a meteorite seems like enough, but no, it also comes with a high-purity diamond embedded in it. The drive also incorporates African Black Wood, which is considered a rather high quality material.
As far as the actual thumb drive is concerned, it's USB 3.0-compatible, and comes with 64GB of internal memory. It also has a lifetime warranty, so at least you know if anything goes wrong with your ultra-expensive drive, you will be able to get it replaced.
The device comes in two different flavors. Both have the diamond and meteorite, but the cheaper version also features 925 silver and will set you back $1,130. The more expensive 18-carat gold model will set you back $1,990.
