If you’ve been a long time reader here at GadgetLite, you might remember when we first mentioned the Digital Cowboy Pod Cowboy, which was essentially a protective case made for iPod Shuffles that looked like Japanese kids’ schoolbags. We don’t know a whole lot about Digital Cowboy, mainly because it seems its products are mostly confined to within Japan, though it could be possible that they’re really popular in Japn! Despite this, here is one which has raised some awareness on it’s unique design during Digital Cowboy’s release.

Digital Cowboy’s latest product is a book like disguised 3.5-inch HDD hard drive, called the W-31UA. As pictured, the HDD can be stacked up in a bookshelf and no one will possibly know it was even there. It’s disguise gives it a vintage hard cover look, titled as ‘HARDBOX’, it’s dimensions are 200 x 159.5 x 40 mm. But I’m not entirely sure about the LED lights located near the bottom on it’s side, that kind of gives it away!
