Telescope cane and USB-drive hip flask

Here's two for steampunks, inconspicuous time-travelers and pimps: a cane with a concealed telescope, and a hip flask containing a USB hard drive instead of whisky. Iomega's leathery eGo hard drive is $142.50 and has 250GB of space. According to the specs, it requires a single USB port–many similar drives require two due to SATA's power requirements. The Hammacher Schlemmer cane comes in at a surprisingly cheap $90. Cut from a 37-inch shaft of African rosewood, it offers only 3X magnification, but infinite magnification of your geek élan.

    AAAARRGGGHHH. What a totally rubbish idea! A hip flask should contain whisky. Fail :)

    Try Amazon. They have a $13.00 cane/compass/4x telescope/ magnifying glass combo, and the cane length is adjustable.
