Default Nifty hard drive enclosure?

Hey I saw on a tv show awhile back a harddrive enclosure that wasnt like the traditional one you run into best buy. It looked kind of like a toaster, and while it was an external hard drive enclosure, it was open ended at the top, for harddrives to be hot-swappable, and to slide and snap into place with the ide/power supply connectors at the bottom of it, effectively turning harddrives into data cartridges.

This would be immensely useful to have but i can't seem to find anything like it online, only the tradional enclosures that have to be unscrewed and physically taken apart to swap drives in and out.

I did find something called a Console Drive -

which is very close to the looks of it, but acts as an external drive bay you can swap drives in and out of, but still needs a harddrive casing to do so, like any other hot swappable drive solutions

Has anyone seen or heard of this?
