DIY: Keychain Made of Dice and USB Drive

These days it’s popular to take just about any house hold item, a USB flash drive, and mill out a space to make a USB mod case.  Today’s post is no exception.  Using just two dice and a mini USB, in four easy steps you can make a USB dice key-chain. Step 1:  Get your items.  Dice, USB, Dremel, blue or epoxy and a file. Step 2:  After some measurements, mill out the hold where the USB will be inserted. Step 3:  Repeat step 2 for the second die as this will be your cap.  You also need to drill a hole on a dice side for the lanyard which will attached to your key-chain Step 4:  Epoxy the USB drive into the base die, and attached the lanyard to the cap die.  Now you’ve got a USB dice key-chain. You might want to take things a step further and carve a groove into both pieces so you can tie the two dice together so they don’t fall apart in your pocket. Again, this is a great example of taking any house hold item and turning it into a modified USB flash drive.  Granted this wont stand up to the test of time like the retail version of this USB key, but it’s a fun project to kill some time.
