デザインにこだわった外付けハードディスクでおなじみの LaCie から、「軍用クラス」のタフ性能をうたうハードディスク 保護ケース Tank が発売されます。分類としては2.5インチハードディスク対応の持ち運び用保護ケースですが、内側のフォーム製クッションをカスタマイズすることで小型のデジタルカメラや携帯ゲーム機など、保護したい小物一般の収納用としても提案されているのが面白い点。発表文の表現はたとえば「あなたのデータを破滅的な落下から守る」「ハリケーンのなかでもデータを安全かつドライに保つ比類ない防護手段」「まさにあなたのデジタルコンテンツのための要塞」。デザインはNeil Poulton。

筐体はゴムとポリプロピレン樹脂製で、防護性能は IP-63 (完全な防塵、および上方60度以内からの散水に対する保護)、具体的によく分からない「軍用クラスの耐衝撃・落下保護」。中に納められるもののサイズは26 x 106 x 125mmまで。ただし2.5インチHDDのほか「ニンテンドー DS lite および DSi (18.9 x 74.9 x 137mm」も入ると説明されているため、緩衝フォームをなんとかすれば多少は融通が効くようです。幅が約17cmあるPSPは無理としても、PSP go ならおそらく入ります。外形寸法は41 x 121 x 186mm、重さは280g。英国での価格は税込み20ポンド、日本円にして2500円くらい。日本のLaCie ではいまのところ販売されていません。

London, UK (7th December 2010) – LaCie announced today a resilient new hard drive case that protects hard drives against hazardous situations – the LaCie Tank, design by Neil Poulton. An ideal fit for 2.5" HDDs, the LaCie Tank is strong enough to drop in a suitcase or shipping box and accessible enough to use every day.

A hard, rugged shell made of rubber and polypropylene snaps securely around your device, keeping out dust and rain. This robust exterior is also shock-resistant and tested against military-grade drop requirements, protecting your data from catastrophic drops. It's manufactured in Italy for guaranteed durability.

Additionally, the LaCie Tank's padded interior can be customised to fit any shape and size, guaranteeing your hard drive is cushioned and snug for any type of transportation. Simply remove foam cubes to fit your device precisely. The Tank is an easy, versatile way to protect your digital content.

"Customers have told us about the myriad of places they take hard drives, and LaCie developed the Tank just for them, providing armour for your hard drive as the name suggests," Claire Rivallan, Consumer Accessories Product Manager. "There are so many elements that can damage invaluable data, which we aimed to eliminate with this design. The Tank can even keep data safe and dry in a hurricane – an unparalleled safeguard."

LaCie Tank can also be configured to carry other portable electronic devices, such as digital cameras and Nintendo DS lite or DSi consoles. Offering military-grade ruggedness, the LaCie Tank is truly a fortress for your digital content.
