Printer Cartridge USB Storage Drive – Great Hidding Spot
GetUSB.info reports on all many different USB hacks which take ordinary items around your house or office and turn them into something different. Today we bring you the USB printer cartridge.
This is a low tech project easy for just about anyone to do. I wasn’t going to report on this because of it’s simplicity, but then I got to thinking. This is a great way to have a USB drive with content you don’t want anyone else to find, hidden nicely in your inkjet printer. At least for me, the color inkjet printer we use only prints black because we really didn’t need color and the cartridges are too expensive.
The full USB hack is laid out really well at Instructables website, but it boils down to 5 basic steps:
Step 1 = Gather up your tools
Step 2 = Break into the USB stick and disassemble the inkjet cartridge [messy]
Step 3 = Clean everything out
Step 4 = Position the USB stick inside the case [ink cart full of silicon]
Step 5 = Button it up and use.
Considering the simplicity of this project, you also have a low budget, about zero cents.
