Contemplating octopus-inspired flash drives

If I could design an octopus-based flash drive, it would have a detachable arm that would deliver little packets of sperm data to my computer. I would call it the Hectocotylus Sexy Octopus flash drive and it would make 1 billion dollars because everyone loves accuracy in their cephalopod love! (OK, not everyone. Link NSFW!)

Actual red-hot octopus sex. The hectocotyl (sperm-arm of the male) is the pink thing being inserted under the females mantle.

But what actually exists in the realm of octopus-based flash drives is the Kissing Octopus.

The kissing octopodes.

Its pastel pink and blue is too self-conciously cute and irritatingly gender-coded for my taste – but as a consumer of lolcats I don’t really occupy much moral high ground. And hey, cephalopod-based technology is always good. From the Engadget writeup:

Just announced as a winner of an iF Design Award, this 8-legged drive comes in light pink and sky blue hues, and 2 / 4 / 8GB varieties. The two-piece contraption consists of the octopus body as well as the USB / nose part, which has a magnetic end which can be used to make a pair of octopuses a couple (or be used to stick love notes to metal surfaces as pictured above).

Thanks, Martini-Corona!
