Star Trek fans might be interested to know that a new range of USB flash drives disguised as Star Trek Discovery badges have launched via Kickstarter this week. Offering a chance to own an officially licensed Star Trek Discovery OTG flash drive at a limited time price. Constructed from metal and built to a scale of 1:1 the iconic Star Trek Insignia drives will be produced in a limited edition run of 10,000 units worldwide.
Early bird pledges are now available for the recently launched project from roughly $32 or £24 (depending on current exchange rates), offering a considerable discount of approximately 36% off the recommended retail price, while the Kickstarter crowd funding is under way.
“The Tiburn D5 Star Trek Discovery Flash Drives are all 1:1 replicas of the Star Trek Discovery Insignia Badges. Cast in sturdy zinc alloy, these drives each has a magnet inside so you can wear it like a real star trek badge, meanwhile it has a pin hole on the back so that you can wear it just like a necklace. Based on the USB 3.1 Gen 1 interface, the D5 Star Trek Discovery drives deliver read speeds of up to 120 MB/s and write speeds up to 55 MB/s. Weighing in at only 39g, series are designed to be highly portable. With built-in USB-A and USB-C compatibility, they each allows you to transfer data between your PC and USB-C enabled smartphones/devices.”
With the assumption that the Star Trek Discovery crowd funding campaign successfully raises its required pledge goal and manufacturing progresses smoothly, worldwide shipping is expected to take place sometime around May 2022.
