If you’re a Star Wars fan, and you’re looking for a retro-looking external hard drive, today we have a special treat for you, because someone has managed to turn Star Wars VHS tapes into portable hard drives.

Star Wars has a great amount of fans and when the first Star Wars movies were released, the only medium for distribution were old VHS tapes, and since technology has rapidly developed, those VHS tapes have been replaced by CDs, DVDs and USB Flash drives. However, if you want to combine the looks of original Star Wars VHS tapes and the power of the portable hard drives, Star Wars VHS portable hard drives are perfect for you. Somebody was busy enough to remove the insides of an old Star Wars VHS tape and replace it with portable hard drives with 320GB, 500GB, 640GB, and 750GB capacity.

As you can see, there’s a way to use old VHS tapes with latest technology, and if you want one of these retro-looking portable hard drives, you should know that 750GB model is priced at $129.99.
