This nifty concept is really quite simple: it’s an external hard drive that only stores what you delete. Of course, if you’re deleting something, you probably want to be rid of it, so the point of this thing is a little dubious, but still. The “Tempo” (as it’s called) was designed by Franco Cagnina, and while it makes sure you never permanently delete something it apparently can be used as a regular external drive with 250Gb of space (Is that “bits”? Shouldn’t it be “bytes”?). The colored LEDs covering the Tempo slowly creep upwards as it reaches maximum capacity. Besides looking good, the Tempo also reinforces the ideal of a “recycling” bin; something that you can add to and remove from.
