Who says external hard drives have to look boring? LaCie's latest external hard drives are out of this world gorgeous and look nothing like boring HDD boxes.
The LaCie Sphere comes with 1TB of storage, USB 3.0, and looks like a work of art from outer space. Designed by Christofle with technology from LaCie, the Sphere is hand-crafted and silvered in France. The Sphere is powered through its USB cable, so no power cord is needed.
Pair this with the previously announced LaCie Fuel, a 1TB portable, wireless hard drive for the iPad, iPhone and Mac, and LaCie is on a tear with beautifully designed hard drives which look nothing like the sort. We can just imagine that shiny Sphere sitting next to an equally shiny Apple Mac Pro, both of which we'd probably have to sell a kidney to afford.
The Sphere will retail at US$490 in January, and the Fuel will retail at US$199.99.
