For steampunkers willing to shed a pretty penny in the name of retro-futurism, WillRockwell’s $3,000 steampunk USB is the perfect choice.

It even comes with its own story line: the flash drive was salvaged from the remains of the ‘Nautilus’ and was Captain Nemo’s personal ‘Pocket Memory.’ And if you examine the details on the steampunk USB closely, you’ll see it does resemble some sort of space age—yet Victorian—submarine. Made of brass and copper, it contains 4GB memory and comes with its own plush velvet cushion.

In love with the steampunk USB himself, the creator explains its steep price tag: "$3,000 is simply what it would take to pry the drive out of my hands and take it from my world into yours." Stats for $3,000 Flash Drives Trending: Older & Mild
