This silver orb is a 1TB portable hard drive

•, Raymond Wong
Last year, LaCie showed off the Blade Runner, a beautiful $300 hard drive designed by famed designer Philippe Starck and this year it's partnered up with another premium brand to create a hard drive unlike any other.

The Sphère is the brainchild of Christofle, a world-renowned manufacturer of silver since 1830. Each silver-plated Sphère orb hard drive is hand-made and polished to perfection in Normandy, France; quality you'd find in the company's legendary silverware and jewelry.

Whereas the Blade Runner's organic and ribbed design helped dissipate heat, there is nothing particularly innovative about the Sphère. Inside is a 2.5-inch hard drive with 1TB storage. The Sphère is entirely bus-powered (USB 3.0), meaning it doesn't need any kind of power supply.
