These R2 USB flash drive cufflinks are brilliant on so many different levels. First of all, nothing says you are full of geek wisdom and mysterious secrets like transporting important personal data and photos on an R2 flash drive, but add to that the fact that these are cufflinks, and well… let me just say you will melt just about any Star Wars geek girl’s heart.
I’ve never seen anything quite like these before, and they combine two very special things in such a geeky way. It all seems so obvious when I look at them. Why didn’t I think of this? It’s like combing peanut butter and chocolate or milk and cookies. It just fits together well, and even though I’m not a guy with a fancy French cut shirt (actually, I’m not a guy at all), I still want a set of these. The only thing that would make them better would be if this little guy made little R2 noises, or if he projects a hologram. I guess that’s probably asking too much though.
Each one of these cufflinks has 2GB of storage space (4GB total). This is functional fashion at its best. And, in case you were wondering, yes, they are officially licensed by Lucasfilm. You know what that means, right? Yup, they are pricey. You can buy them at Cufflinks for $200. Hey, like we always say, being a geek ain’t cheap, especially if you are a high-tech Star Wars geek.
