Atari USB Flash DriveSomewhere in a parallel universe where Atari is still king, this is what their flash drives look like. In our world USB flash drives are small and come in all sorts of shapes that are smaller than an Atari cartridge. Except this one.

World Cup Soccer Players USB drives

Posted in USB Flash Drives by Conner Flynn on June 25th, 2009

World Cup Soccer Players USB drivesSome call it soccer, others call it football. Some just know it as that sport they played once that got them kicked in the groin. Whatever you call it in your country, it’s a little known fact that the heads of these athletes are removable and store data.

How do you think they come up with their game plan in the locker room? Did you think the coach simply talks to them while pointing a stick at a chalkboard? No, that would be silly. Instead, each 1 GB player removes his head and plugs himself into a port, becoming part of the team “collective” and downloading game plans. Their endgame? World domination with Pele as their new God.

Recycled cardboard USB flash drives

Recycled cardboard USB flash drivesIf you’re concerned about the environment, the recycled cardboard USB flash drive is right up your alley. These are basically disposable USB flash drives. As newer, larger capacity drives become cheaper, the older ones typically get tossed aside.

That’s why this is a good idea. No one wants to see a landfill full of old drives. Five of these come together as one large piece. The idea is that when you need one, you just snap one off. And most of the drive can be recycled when you are done with it.
