Dolf Lundgren Meets the Cloud

6Hard Drive by Phillipe Starck

A limited edition external hard drive? ┬áStorage that’s not a cloud? A portable hard drive with looks to “cut”?Meet Blade Runner.

This new release from Philippe Stark and LaCie is pretty but with all my storage dinosaurs laden about my office and home – Time capsules, LaCie Rugged portables, Western Digital wallets, iClouds, Dropboxs and more – I’m not about to pre-buy this beauty to be the envy of my friends.

It’s functional according to Starck, and this description is perhaps what delights me most about this product:

“In the Blade Runner, the warm interior electronics are encased in a mystifying shell, and the blades are the radiator that cools it down. The suspension gives space for air to circulate around the hard drive, and the metal material increases the temperature conduction.”

This is stunning hard drive and it would even be an incredible building if the materials were more translucent. Come ‘on China or Dubai, build this one soon!6a00d8341bf67c53ef017ee70aa377970d-800wi
