Zip Zip Introduces A Building Block Friendly External Hard Drive

We first wrote about the Zip Zip building block USB flash drives way back in 2007, and surprisingly the company has yet to come under legal fire from LEGO since then. So, perhaps with a false sense of legal security, they’ve finally decided to expand their offerings with a new line of external hard drives that look like large LEGO blocks. Except they’re not. Got it?

Available in 500GB to 1TB capacities and sporting USB 3.0, the drives can be stacked together forming one uber-brick storage unit. Or adorned with your favorite, though in no way officially associated, LEGO building blocks. They’ll probably also serve as a handy home base for the Zip Zip USB flash drives. They haven’t popped up on Zip Zip’s website just yet, but it’s safe to assume they’ll be available sometime between now and the start of the Christmas shopping season.

    Brilliant idea. I wonder if they overheat when stacked!
