Damn you, LaCie! These Brick Desktop and Mobile hard drives in the shape of Lego blocks are irresistible to the child and tinkerer in me. Designed by Ora- to, who has done crazy beautiful work for LG, Toyota, Swatch, and others, these stackable drives come in red, white or blue. The desktops range from 160-500 GB ($119-$399), and the mobile versions are 40-120GB ($119-$329). The red 250GB desktop brick is in stock now; the rest of the desktop drives are up for pre-order and ship in December. The Mobile versions come out in January.
But don't go dropping your ducats just yet, because LaCie says this is just the first of several HDD products from famed designers that the company is introducing in the next 6-12 months.
