Steampunk USB flash drive for $3,000 doesn’t sport gold nor diamonds

Steampunk products get recognized for their uniqueness. If the Steampunk USB flash drive from Russia failed to enthuse my readers, then there is one more USB drive that won’t fail to get noticed. If not for its appearance, then at least for the price tag of $3,000, it sports! And I am sorry to inform you that you don’t get a bejeweled storage device for this much money. It is simple shaped out of brass and copper. The seller on Etsy justifies this 4GB’s price tag by saying that “I respect the art too much to undervalue it and besides, this is the only one of these in the world.” What the maker fails to understand, not everyone will understand his sentiments. Even if a deep-pocketed geek wants to shell out $3 grand for a Steampunk USB flash drive, he will expect it to be crafted in gold or diamond-studded. This one doesn’t even belong to a renowned brand!
