Now that electronics manufacturers have come to fine-tune the effective and compact composition of items like flash drives, the way has been paved for designers to step in and beautify such gadgets. The Woody Pen Drive features an entirely timber exterior that encases its hi-tech inner components.

YGO of Portugal uses oak, walnut, cherry and zebrano wood as warm, natural an textural sheaths for the pocketable data storage devices. A simple block, however, was manipulated into a more abstract form with subtly jagged sides that enriches visual intrigue and makes the little gizmo easier to grasp between your fingers. The charming Woody Pen Drive looks like an uninterrupted piece when closed, since the body and the cap have been carefully crafted with a continuous wood grain pattern.
