LaCie teased us at CES with the prospect of a rare high-concept hard drive design in the Blade Runner, but it left out the rather important matter of when we could buy the Philippe Starck-designed storage. As we’ve discovered, we didn’t have to wait long — the Blade Runner has just become available. Plunk down $300 and you’ll get a 4TB, USB 3.0-based external drive that melds a blob-like disk shell with aluminum blades that both cool the main body and create a (minor) conversation piece. Just be sure to hurry if you’re looking for a dash of art with your extra drive space, as it’s doubtful that the Blade Runner’s 9,999-unit production run will last.
