Given the increasingly-strange places USB Flash drives turn up these days – from Swiss Army knives to penguins – nothing should come as a surprise. But it still seems odd that ck Calvin Klein would decide that what the world wants right now is a 4GB USB data storage device built into a pair of designer sunglasses.

Simply pull off the detachable arm and you're ready to store music, photos or data. Is this a great idea or a desperate attempt to add some technological relevance to fashion? We’ll leave that for you to decide but would like to point out that, given the frequency with which we misplace sunglasses, this could just be a convenient way to lose two things at once.

The ck Calvin Klein USB sunglasses will be available in October for USD$199.00.

I'm thinking its intent is to give someone the ability to bring a USB flash drive into places where they're not supposed to be. Seems more like a spy device than a fashion statement.

for a spy device we need a camera behind the hinge. I'm thinking what the hell to do once the lens becomes scratched...bic world after all. except bic lighters and standalone usb sticks are pretty cheap. nmow we are asked to pay designer prices? not this kid.
