This USB Flash Drive Will Self Destruct

Everyone’s probably familiar with the classic line from the beginning of each Mission Impossible episode where each mission’s instructional letter self destructs. Well the Tamatebako flash drive from Fujitsu is a modern take on that same premise- a self destructing data source. Now unlike the TV series, the drive doesn’t actually burst into a tiny fireball but it does effectively render itself useless. The Tamatebako can be set to erase any data stored at a given time frame from 10 minutes to a week. It can be set to delete if the incorrect password is entered or if it’s plugged into an unauthorized computer. It holds 2GB of memory and will be available in Japan initially for an undisclosed price. Tin foil hat not included.
