Mass Storage Stone: Totally Geeky or Geek Chic?

The earthy cousin of the wooden memory sticks the Mass Storage Stone is an external hard drive inspired by nature. While it's still a concept, Michael Leung hopes to create a portable 4 GB hard drive that fits into your pocket, and has similar qualities to a stone - textured and slightly cold to touch. Do you like the natural feel and idea or do you think a stone looks preposterous next to a computer? I happen to think the metaphor of things being stored in a stone is fantastically geek chic - but that might be the geologist in me.
Our own calamari spotted this one on Swiss Miss!

It's clever, but I don't think it looks very attractive... so I wouldn't buy it.
