We've seen a couple of wooden USB flash drives on the market, but I have to say that this one is by far the most beautiful. It's carved from an exotic wood that's known for being resistant and hard. But that's not all. The creator assures us that his security features included on your drive make it very safe to keep your very valuable data. Click the jump to find out more.
This beautifully made Wooden USB drive is a testament to Woodventure's craftsmanship. If you aren't feeling up to the challenge on making your own, you can simply purchase this one from Woodventure's Etsy store. This USB flash drive has 8 GB of storage and is made out of Cocobolo wood, a hard tropical wood from Central America. It's supposed to resist weather and the elements pretty well and is known for being very hard. If that's not enough to win your interest, Woodventure has added several security features to this flash drive, making you data secure. The only way it could be more secure would be with a fingerprint scanner. The flash drive is split into an unsecured drive and a secured drive which is encrypted. Only when your access has been authenticated can you access the encrypted data. Otherwise, this portion of the drive is invisible to you, unless you know what to look for.
Sounds pretty secure to us, but then again, we rarely store anything that needs that much protection on USB flash drives. This is one nice looking USB drive and it's available for about $60. Naturally, these security features can be added to any USB drive, you just need the right little programs to do so. Also, a bunch of different manufacturers sell secure and encrypted USB flash drives, one of the foremost is offered by Kingston. The DataTraveler BlackBox looks safe enough to be used by the CIA and is more encrypted than anything else that I've seen. It's supposed to be mainly used by the government.
