With increased access to digital photos and graphics, students are creating computer files too big to save on a single floppy disk to transfer them between home and school. With Sony’s Micro Vault USB storage device, however, students and teachers can save and transport large files—such as PowerPoint presentations loaded with audio and video—between computers with ease.

The Micro Vault is about the size of a pack of gum. It plugs into a computer’s USB port and is automatically recognized by the latest Windows and Macintosh operating systems. Users don’t have to worry about cables, adapters, software, or interoperability between PCs and Macs. The device also has a password-protected security feature to ensure security of the files.

The Micro Vault comes in four sizes:16 MB (orange), 32 MB (red), 64 MB (blue), and 128 MB (black). The suggested retail prices are $49.99, $69.99, $99.99, and $149.99, respectively.
