Super Talent Technology has announced a special edition gold edition Pico-C flash drive which is claimed to be the smallest of its kind. The 64GB NAND Flash storage solution offers 30MB per second read speed and 15MB write, is USB 2.0 compatible and is just 1.23 x 0.48 x 0.13-inches (31.3 x 12.4 x 3.4mm) in size.

Weighing less than a nickel at just 0.21 ounces (6g) and marketed as both rugged and water resistant, the special edition Pico-C 64GB has been treated to a 24K gold-plated finish. The ring loop at one end lends itself to being attached to a keyring or carry strap but its flashy gold exterior could just see the drive becoming this year's must-have geeky fashion accessory.

The drive doesn't sport a full USB plug like the Moskeyto from LaCie and isn't as snug a fit to the USB port. Its capless design makes it similar to the Super Stick Mini but it is a bit thicker to accommodate four times the storage capacity offered by the Kingmax drive.

Pico-C 64GB is available for US$165.
