Granted the duct tape approach is more in tune with kids, but lets give this a quick review. In four simple steps you can do this exact project. Step 1 – Grab some materials, that being a ruler, knife, duct tape, thumb drives and creativity. Step 2 – Make the back plane duct tape which is very similar to making a duct tape wallet. Step 3 – Add the pockets.Â In the picture you can see the USBs are parallel with each other, I would recommend staggering them so the thickness is reduced when folding. Step 4 – Put the finishing touches on there with some clean lines of duct tape, patterns and custom designs. For the full tutorial and loads more pictures visit Instructables. Continue Reading

The Steampunk device is an 8GB flash drive with a microSD card reader at the tail end, which is a nice twist for someone looking for more storage.Â The technology is made of disassembled retail product where the microSD card reader is built into the flash drive.Â Clearly the device will show two drive letters when connected to the computer, one for the USB stick and the other for the card reader.
The price is much higher at $195 then it’s retail original package [about $15], but hey, youâ€™ll never get a great looking, hand crafted USB case like this USB Steampunk. Continue Reading
Gresso introduced a 64GB USB flash drive which is F1 racing inspired with sleek design, look and material.Â Gresso used the base material to be carbon fiber [the black] and titanium alloy as the accents [silver] then glazed the entire device with a special ceramic coating.
The Gresso branded USB stick will set you back 6,448 Peso’s or about $500 USDs.Â Still small enough to be lost in any coat pocket, but a perfect stocking stuffer for the well-to-do.
So the question becomes:Â would your friends be more impressed with the Gresso flash drive or a $500 bill?
I’d pick the cash.Continue Reading
They do a good job of selling the concept with: “Even if you never master the art of blowing the harp, you’ll never have to throw this harmonica in the back of a drawer. Sweet gift for anybody, young or old, who really likes music.”
If this stick gains any kind of traction we can expect china to knock off a plastic version of this in about 3 months or less.Â Granted, it’s not your typical custom USB drive, but for those looking to get the original mod, head over to Etsy and grab yourself a 2GBer of sweet soul for $44USD.
