LaCie XtremKey: A New, Rugged Flash Drive

LaCie has kept the “rugged” theme going for its gadgets for a very long time, including their latest. The XtremKey is a flash drive that can tolerate water up to 100 meters, withstand temperatures as low as -58 degrees Fahrenheit (-50 in Celsius) and as high as 400 degrees F (204 degrees C), and even resist drops of up to 16 feet.

The ruggedness is achieved by screwing the USB drive into a two-millimeter-thick metal pipe, which can tolerate pressures up to 10 tons. The LaCie XtremKey is available in capacities from 8GB to 64GB. It is expected to be available in August and is expected to be an expensive gadget.
