Protect your USBs precious info with the Konami code


I admit, I like fancy flash drives. I haven’t purchased one yet because the price is typically rape for the extra decor, but I’ve certainly smiled when I’ve seen an innovative one. Sighted at Gizmodo yesterday, this NES mod has the NES controller transformed into a flash drive which requires a security code to access its contents. The access code? The Konami code, of course.

Clever, yes, but easy to carry around in your pocket, not so much, Still, this little nostalgic nod earned a smile from me. I wonder why no one’s made a USB stick that just looks like a tiny little NES controller? I’d buy that in a heartbeat … if it wasn’t ridiculously overpriced because of its coolness.
