How about a USB memory stick that looks hungry when there’s no data in it?
The inflated belly means the memory is full.
This one is different from the other previous ones.
Plug it in a USB port and start pumping it, then on the screen, the icon scatters what’s in it.
The harder you pump, the farther the icons travel.

I think the Inflator would make a cute novel item, but a terrible way to manage files. How does it decides what it blows out? Do you want all your stuff blown out in some order?
I much prefer the USB drive with the E/F fuel gauge indicating how full it is.

The sense I am getting is that you are more interested in 3D imaging than in product design. Of course, I could be completely mistaken. In case you are interested in product design, think about function too. USB ports are placed quite close to each other. Some of your designs might not allow others ports to be used.

So cool! i guess they’re not exactly secure USB flash drives, but the inflator one is the cutest thing in the world.
