It can also survive being run over by a 10-tonne truck, being fired and oven baked, frozen in a household freezer and battered with a hammer.  It can also read data at 40Mbps and write data at 3Mbps.

The hard-drive, which ranges from 8GB capacity to 64GB, gains its hardness from a 2mm metal casing. No details on pricing yet, but it's out next month.

See it take a beating in the video below.
