Harddrive on legs

Drive Legs is a portable hard drive which stands up if liquid is spilled near it. Created by James Chambers, who is experimenting with giving products defense mechanisms to maintain their functioning within the unpredictable reality of everyday use. We also like his sneezing Gesundheid radio.

My favorite part is how someone has to push it upright as it won't function on its own. It may need a little more work...

@greg
Yeah just what I was thinking, nice idea though.
Reminds me of the BigDog DARPA development that won't fall over, or the Mercedes cars that don't want to crash.

And then it stops functioning from the impact of the "dismount" :p

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
