A new pair of whimsical USB drives, styled like Elvis
February 3, 2013 | 12:00 AM

Mimoco, the company known for its Mimobot flash drives made to resemble fantasy characters like Boba Fett, Captain Kirk and Batman, has added a figure from a distinctly different sphere of pop culture, Elvis Presley.

Why Elvis suits the tech audience isn't clear, but fans will have a choice between a limited edition 'G.I. Blues'-era Elvis or a jumpsuited 1973 'Aloha From Hawaii' Elvis. Each Elvis is priced similarly and is available in four storage sizes, from 8GB at $20 to 64GB at $70.
The drives are USB 3.0 capable and come with digital extras, like wallpapers, screen savers and other Mimobot Elvis icons.

There is even audio, but don't expect to hear the King taking care of business. It's the preferred sound-alike of Elvis Presley Enterprises, Jamie Aaron Kelley, crooning lines like, "I'm savin' the last file fer meeee." There is some actual Elvis video: an interview before the 1973 concert, and one from the day he mustered out of the Army.
