While most portable hard disks are boxy 6-sided affairs, SimpleTech eschews practicality and is releasing a 5-sided device. Yes, by cutting out one entire side, their 5400RPM, 8MB drives trade balance for style.

Created by the Italian design house Pininfaria Extra, the drives come in 40 to 100GB sizes at prices from $109 to $179.99. Available colors are red, gray, silver, white and black. Nice if you want something flashy to go with your glossy VoodooPC Envy:734 gaming laptop.
