These high tech wristbands look like the popular wristbands that are sold to benefit charities. Pop them apart, however, and you'll find a flash drive (digital storage device) that can be used in your computer's USB port. They come in eight colors and six drive capacities. Want them customized? You can add a logo and even a preloaded file.

Implications - The flash drive represents much more than a means of transferring information in today's digitized society; the USB key represents mobility, research, and personal pieces of information. Thus, tech companies and designers alike are looking to integrate a more decorative element into USB keys, making them literal keys to an individual's private life and personality.
