A new look for discs

Novelty company Shape CD rethinks the familiar circular shape into burgers, Levi’s pockets, and more

Posted on

Wanna pop a cheeseburger into your CD-ROM drive? Now you can…sort of. New York-based novelty company Shape CD, Inc., rethinks the familiar circular silhouette of the compact disc, making a wide variety of shapes, including cutouts of burgers, Levi’s pockets, and even head shots of pop stars, like Elvis or Bowie. (File under Needless Purchases.) The audio and ROM discs can hold up to 60 minutes’ worth of data, depending on the form they take. But don’t go popping the audio-only versions of these babies into the car CD player; the uneven edges could slice and dice your system.
