TikiMac's new "Big Tiki Drive" is the world's first high-speed USB flash drive in the form of a grinning, glowing Tiki idol.
TikiMac today unveiled the Big Tiki Drive, the world's first USB 2.0 storage
device in the form of a grinning Tiki idol,
with hypnotic glowing eyes and a blinking "aura."
It works with Macintosh OS X 10.x and OS 9.2.x computers as well as Windows PCs
running ME, 2000, and XP. The drive is fully plug-and-play compatible with
Macintosh systems, and requires no special drivers. It's backward-compatible
with USB 1.1.
Big Tiki Drives are about four inches high and currently available in 256 MB,
512 MB, 1 GB, 2 GB, and 4 GB capacities.
The Big Tiki Drive comes with a six-foot illuminated "Lava USB" data cable in
either red, white or blue, a soft draw-string pouch for storage and transport, a
protective connector "end cap" and comes with a 2 year limited warranty and
unlimited technical support.
The device costs between $59 and $429, depending on capacity.
