Loony Tunes flash drives
No matter how young or old you are, Loony Tunes cartoon characters will always bring a smile to your dial. Stumbling across the Loony Tunes flash drives made by Emtec did just that. Awh, they’re cute :)
Emtec also licensed Angry Birds, Asterix, Pucca & Garu and Kooky characters for USB flash drives. As with the Loony Tunes flash drives, they’re only 46mm (1.8 inches) high max and have small straps with which you can attach the character to a keyring or a bag handle.
Technically they’re not too shabby either, sporting 15MB/s read and 5MB/s write times. And they come in either 4GB or 8GB capacity.
The Angry Bird flash drives:
