This USB Drive Is More Awesome Than Meets the Eye



Well, maybe not, but that’s only because your eye is likely seeing the above picture, which clearly shows the USB Drive clearly transforming into Ravage, Soundwave’s robo-panther buddy from Transformers, which is totally fucking awesome. It’s such a simple, brilliant idea that it makes me want to go to bed, because i know I won’t be seeing (let alone thinking) anything better today. Ravage hold two gigs, cost $43, is due in September, and can be pre-ordered here. Thanks to everyone who sent in the tip.

He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others.

Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
