A thought just occurred to me: I do not own a USB stick. I know I used to have one. Maybe even two or three. I just kind of lost track of where they are.
Maybe, just maybe, there is a market for disposable USB sticks. What do you think?
Well, these guys in Russia came up with a brilliant idea some time last year: tear-off USB sticks (not the official term, obviously).
You know how the people of this generation seem to want everything instantaneously? And how their attention span is so short that the word disposable is applicable to so many thing?
The Fleshkus (the real name for the concept tear-off USB sticks) might be a good product for this generation. The idea is summed up in a single photo.
Why use lumpy USB sticks that you lose all the time anyway when you can have all the tear-off USB sticks you want? And who is to say that these tear-off USB sticks can’t come in different storage sizes as well?
Is it just me, or is this idea really, really brilliant?
If you’re thinking that the sticks are too plain, take a look.
Thats one of the tear-off USB sticks in action, obviously with custom decoration. With each stick being blank, you simply have to take a Sharpie or Crayola and decorate it however way you want to!
Sadly, the tear-off USB sticks are not for real (yet); a mere concept they remain. Still, Art Lebedev and his team deserve recognition for this, don’t you think?
