In case you're as sick of plastic as we are, Brinell Powerstorage hard drives combine the best tech of Asian tech with the best of European craftsmanship.

German-based design group Brinell has developed a line of Purestorage USB drives housed in materials including wood, stainless steel, leather and carbon. Ranging from 160-500GB and $284-$344, of course you can get a hard drive cheaper. But chances are it'll look that way, too. [openpr via Newlaunches]
