Flash Storage Stuffed into USB Humping Dog

Remember the absolutely useless (and sold out) USB humping dog accessory that popped up some time back. A modder has actually made the little pup useful by giving it a little bit of Flash memory. As a result, Fido got transformed for a quirky toy that’ll draw stares to a quirky toy that’ll draw stares and store your less than pleasant “documents.”

When the hacker took the dog apart, however, he discovered that there wasn’t any room left in there, between the gears and such, to place the memory components. He then opted for “plan B, which is to solder the parts outside.” Now, when you plug the dog into your USB port, it doesn’t hump automatically. Instead, it only goes through its mating dance when the memory is being accessed.

Now, the biggest question of them all is: When will this memory-full dog become commercially available?
