If you’re planning to pick up a $6,500 Hasselblad Lunar mirrorless camera and need a matching USB flash drive to store your photos, you should definitely take a look at the Apophis. It’s a high-end flash drive by Polish firm Zana Design that, like the Lunar, is crafted out of rare materials. How rare? Well, one of the ingredients is meteorite.
That’s right: it contains chunks of a 4.5-billion-year-old space rock in its outer shell — a casing that’s made out of exotic 200-year-old black African wood (supposedly “the most luxurious wood in the world”) and “high-purity” diamond. As if that’s not enough, the drive comes in “Gold” and “Silver” variants that — you guessed it — are plated with 18-carat gold and 925 silver, respectively.
The USB 3.0 drives both have 64GB capacities, 190MB/s read speeds, and lifetime guarantees.
Given all the Apophis’ crazy attributes, the pricing is actually quite reasonable — as long as you think the Hasselblad Lunar’s price is reasonable. The Gold version costs $1,990 and the Silver one costs $1,130. Head on over to Zana Design to buy yours today.
P.S. In case you’re wondering, the name “Apophis”, refers to the near-Earth asteroid 99942 Apophis that has a 1/250,000 chance of striking our planet on April 13, 2036.
P.P.S. We also think both the Lunar and the Apophis would be the perfect gifts for people who have everything — like this guy:
