Japan: Making Technology Cooler

I've seen some attempts before to make USB flash drives more visually appealing but none of them compare to this set of memeory sticks coming from Japanese company Buffalo. They're little figures that fold open to reveal the USB connector.

I think the coolest part about them is the varied character selection that runs the gamut of Japanese popular culture. There's the first Gundam from the original series, Ultraman, Lupin the Third and Rei Ayanami from Evangelion; the the Evangelion@School version of the character to be specific. There's also Konata from Lucky Star and a character I'm not familar with from the recent Macross Frontier.
