You wouldn't expect an electronic device to have personality, but the Virus USB appears to have a suspicious one. The designer deviated from the common practice of creating a boring-looking box for his data storage device and instead sculpted a spherical form with ears and a painted face.

Bright fuchsia eyes and an overbite are strikingly suspicious cartoony features. A base shade of black makes the quirky critter look like an adorable parasite, complete with a strange tail in the form of a cord and a computer connector. Equally, the odd external hard drive by Mangatanz resembles a bomb with an ignitable wick. The Virus USB whimsically suggests that its an unsafe gadget to use with your computer.
