Life imitates art. (Minor Fallout: New Vegas spoilers ahead!)

In the video game Fallout: New Vegas, there’s a very important item–a kind of MacGuffin, really–that looks like a platinum poker chip, but which turns out to be a data storage device.

Well, a fan of the game actually took it upon himself to build a working platinum chip/data storage device. Pretty cool.

Actually, they apparently do mass-produce platinum-colored data storage devices that are about the size and shape of a poker chip. Amusingly, I discovered this fact after I had already played New Vegas, and I did what must have been quite a comical double take upon seeing it.

What's your stake in this, cowboy?
