Valencia's designer, Luis Eslava Aloy (graduated from the Royal College of Art) has designed for ABR the XXI century's object of adoration: the USB Saint (Oh Maria, keep my data safe!).
According to Luis Eslava â€œComputer as a new religion. We trust in computers without knowing how they work. Computers as an entity of adoration. Oh Maria keep my data safe! A USB Virgin that you plug into your computer and hope for the best. For the majority computers are still a big mystery, and independently of how experts we are, there seems to still be a significant bit that is governed by laws we cannot predict. Every time my computer crashes, virus, alert, we end up imploring to a superior being who would protect the existing data.â€
The kitsch detail: the Virgin's heart blinks when connected !
