External hard drives are really common now, and with eco-friendly hard drives coming on to the market with lower power consumption, it’s great to see an external hard drive with an eco-friendly design. The Simple Drive was designed by Anne Dickhoff in a recent design competition. The Simple Drive is made from recyclable plastic and is easily disassembled when the hard drive reaches the end of its shelf-life.
Rather than use energy-consuming fans, the external hard drive uses air vents, allowing air to circulate around the drive to cool it down. The Simple Drive was also designed with usability in mind, with just 2 sockets. One is the USB socket, and the other is the AC power socket to power the drive.
With 1TB of storage, the drive will easily be useful for most people. Let’s just hope it reaches the market soon!
