These small and convenient oversized memory cards, built upon the principles of solid state flash RAM have quickly become a billion-dollar industry and truly come in all shapes and sizes. Some of the more entertaining varieties include the Japanese food range, consisting of delights such as battered whole-tail shrimp:
The popular and culturally significant sake:
A range of sushi and dim sum:
And probably the craziest of all, a whole plate and fork of a traditional Japanese noodle dish:
This last one isn't actually a flash drive, it's a hub; look closely at the end of the fork and amongst the tightly coiled plastic noodles hides a USB port. It seems to be the only one, and apart from being weird to the point of cool, it seems that it has little practical value.
As well as the Japanese food, the craziest USB flash drive I have seen so far has got to be the Ghost Radar flash drive. Shaped like a ghost face, the front is adorned with red lights that flash in the presence of "unusual magnetic fields" which supposedly mark a close proximity to entities of the supernatural:
Other unusual flash drives include fluffy animals, wristbands, classic plastic ducks, a Barbie doll, a Swiss army knife, a wristwatch, a severed thumb, a tiki statue, and, strangely, an inflatable orange bag.
One excellent device, which may or may not be an infringement of somebody's privacy, looks at first glance like any normal flash drive, but is in fact a portable GPS tracker that records, among other things, every location it is taken to. Great for secretly monitoring your kid's or spouse's movements, it even synchronizes with a range of online mapping services, including Google Earth, to show you exactly where someone has been.
