The stylish bean shaped USB drive can be used for consumers looking to store images and media files, and the device can be carried using its cute leaf strap. The Magic Bean is targeted to young users and creative consumers, and thus comes in an assortment of bright and vivid colors.

Yellow represents Luck and has a 2GB capacity; green represents Wisdom and has 4GB of storage; blue comes in 8GB and represents Wealth, and so on, with Beauty and Love representing 16GB and 32GB capacities.
The glossy and warm look of the Magic Bean USB drive makes it an eye-catching fashion accessory when strapped to cell phones, bag or key chain and makes for a great gift idea the company stated.
