Concrete: Construct Your Product

Seems like designers are finding more interesting things to do with concrete beyond buildings and decorative planters. I think they’re drawn to the rock-solid (yes a pun) stability of the material (like for use in these USB drives). Or little architectural desk pieces as if to day, “Layoffs be damned, I’m not going anywhere, buddy”. Or perhaps you’re drawn to the permanence of concrete and titanium wedding bands – gee that’s not heavy symbolism, it it? (Yes, another pun.)

    Neat! I’d been looking for a pourable housing for prototype USB devices. I imagine I need a bit smoother grade than Quikrete, huh?
