Posted in USB Flash Drives by Conner Flynn on August 1st, 2011

Like most disasters, the tsunami and earthquake have faded from the headlines and so faded from people’s thoughts. Just because it isn’t the top headline doesn’t mean those folks are just fine now. They still need aid.

Incubot, in conjunction with World Events Productions and CustomUSB, have created a line of Japan Relief custom 2G USB drives. These are limited edition, fully licensed, and in colors that honor the japanese flag. The best part is that 100% of profits go to Japanese Red Cross Society and to Safecast radiation monitoring efforts.

You certainly have your choices when it comes to flash drives, but maybe you want something different. Something in a sphere.

And now the Tamawa Billiard Ball flash drive is made from the stuff.

When closed the flash drive looks like two billiards balls fused together. The 8GB Tamawa Billiard Ball flash drive will cost you $122.

NES Cartridge Flash Drive with Console USB Port

Posted in DIY by Reuben Drake on March 9th, 2011

We’ve seen the NES modded into many different things and we’ve seen even seen NES cartridges used as cases for external hard drives, but this mod is ridiculous and awesome at the same time. Ed Lewis created this NES cartridge flash drive with a NES console USB port. That’s right, there’s only one USB connector inside that console.

To make one yourself, all you need to do is open up the cartridge, take out the board and make a gap for a flash drive, then glue it inside. Then open up the console, cut a hole in the middle of the cartridge connector for the flash drive to slide in, and another hole at the back of the console for a USB cable.
