Century OS Emergency Box

Japanese outfit Century is selling the OS Emergency Box, an unusual approach to USB backup. It's actually an enclosure, which supports any 2.5-inch EIDE hard drive as long as it's also less than 0.4 inches thick. Once the Box is configured, users can simply push the "Data Backup" button to copy documents, or they can push "OS Backup," which copies over a bootable version of Windows in case the local copy becomes corrupt. The Restore button returns whatever data was last chosen to be copied. The Emergency Box requires Windows 2000 or XP, and is available online for 3,980 yen ($33).
