Is Transcend planning a 2TB USB thumb drive?

According to a video posting on YouTube of memory card maker Transcend and Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) have teamed up to produce a USB 3.0 flash drive with up to 2TB of capacity.

The drive, described as measuring as long as a human thumb and slightly thicker than a penny, was video taped at the Display Taiwan 2011 technology show. The model on display had only 16GB, but the display states that it's capable of scaling to 2TB.

"If you're wondering who exactly is ITRI and why have they created an ultra thin 2TB USB, they are Taiwan's government sponsored innovation lab whose sole purpose is to help Taiwanese companies innovate, and since Taiwan is the home of hardware, it stands to reason they'd have some cool gadgets laying around," the YouTube poster states.

Neither Taiwan-based Transcend nor the ITRI immediately responded to Computerworld requests for information about the drive technology.
