Funny USB Memory Stick #6 Final

This transparent USB memory stick covers all the convenient functions of the memory sticks I’ve introduced so far. The light inside the glass represents the data saved in it: No lights means no data, lights filling the glass means there’s no more space. The kind of data is recognized with colors. For example pink is for images, blue is for documents and green for movies, etc. It would be more fun if the lights can move in the glass when you shake it.

Synced with the icon on your desktop of course.

Inspired by Japanese Soma-Toh or a revolving lantern, which beautifully shows colored silhouette.

    Can someone explain how this technology would work? I dont see how this wont cost $100+ if fit in the normal size of a common usb stick. Way out of the reach of anyone serious about using it for practical purposes.

  54. Oh man, that is a sweet idea. I’m not sure how it would work but I bet someone could figure it out. It looks completely transparent but it could be faked to look that way with some mirrored material behind the lights. Awesome!
