Earlier this month at CES, LaCie announced the Blade Runner by Philippe Starck, and we got to have a closer look at it.
With only 9,999 produced, the LaCie Blade Runner is a limited edition hard drive for design-conscience consumers. Starck’s influence is evident from the complex design concept to the hands-on manufacturing process. Each unit is custom-built to ensure superb form and function. It is the statement piece in any home office, study or media room. The artistic design combines with the high-speed USB 3.0 interface and cross-platform compatibility to result in a hard drive that is as practical as it is stunning.
And here is a closer look:
As you can see, the one I got to have a look at was number 0093 of 9999.
The Blade Runner itself is very heavy (which it would be considering the material it is made out of).
If you are interested in owning one of these then you had better hurry as they are selling like hot cakes!
The LaCie Blade Runner is equipped with 10GB of complimentary Wuala Secure Cloud Storage and user-friendly backup software. It is available in a 4TB capacity through the LaCie Online Store and specialty retailers for $299.00.
