Thought I would mention some more excellent Australian product design whilst on the topic.

I found myself sitting next to a lovely young chap called Edmund (I hope the spelling it correct) at the Design Capital event just over a week ago. We got chatting whilst the grown-up designers ‘networked’… and he mentioned this cute USB memory stick he designs and manufactures.

It’s called the Zip Zip USB Memory Brick – it comes in 1 GB (US$35), 2 GB (US$50) and 4 GB $US75). It is NOT affiliated with Lego, and just between you and me, I think they are slightly peeved that they didn’t think of it first.

Anyway… I made Edmund give one to Nendo‘s Oki Sato after the lecture… hope he liked it!
