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 looks funny next to the computer but oddly I like it.

I think this is totally chic!!! Having married a computer scientist and me being an interior designer, need I say more!! I am always looking for cool new products that will blend in with our surroundings!! Keep them coming.

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

I like it, I just think I'd end up losing it or having someone throw it outside while I'm not around.

i love the subtlety, though I would like some sort of indication that it is on and working. also, i would fear someone would throw it out!
