LaCie’s always had a certain flair for external hard drive design, bringing as much style to its hardware as functionality. But the company appears to have just one-upped its past efforts with the stunning Blade Runner that packs four terabytes of storage into an enclosure that looks like it was sculpted by a renaissance master.

However the Blade Runner isn’t Michelangelo’s handiwork. Instead, LaCie called on Philippe Starck once again to come up with its design that surrounds an anthropomorphically-shaped core with a series of sturdy aluminium blades that double as a heatsink, not just eye candy. With four terabytes of storage inside, and 10 gigabytes online, the USB 3.0 drive’s $US300 price tag is somewhat justified. But if you want one on your desk you’ll have to act fast since LaCie is only producing 9999 of them in a relatively limited run.
