For the past two years, LaCie has revealed at least one new artist collaboration at CES, and this year is no different. Keeping with the reflective theme of last year's device, the 2015 edition is wrapped in Gorilla Glass and appropriately called Mirror. After teaming up with Philippe Starck and Christofle for previous releases, the company tasked French designer Pauline Deltour for a shiny 1TB hard drive that's covered in Corning's durable glass material and powered through a USB connection (no Thunderbolt here). To properly show the thing off on your desk, a stand of ebony wood provides a resting spot. If you're looking to keep the collection going, or just nab this particular entry, Mirror will arrive later this month for $280. What's that? You were hoping LaCie would have a new Rugged portable hard drive, too? Well, read on.

LaCie's Rugged line of portable hard drives has long been a popular choice for those needing a dependable storage solution out in the field. And one that can take a beating, should conditions warrant it. That being said, the company regularly updates the Rugged family, and this time around, there's a RAID option. The LaCie Rugged RAID serves up a 4TB mobile repository that comes configured in RAID 0 for up to 240 MB/s transfers. Switch it over to RAID 1 and the Thunderbolt (or USB, if you prefer) device can mirror those stored files on its two drives. In the event one fails, you've got a backup in the same spot. As we've come to expect with these units, Rugged RAID is bus-powered via its connection to your computer and maintains its shock-, dust- and waterproof orange-lined exterior. Anxious to add one to your travel setup? You'll be able to do so later this quarter for $450.
