99 Funky Functional Flash Drives

From Steampunk Memory Sticks to Crystallized USB Jewelry

— May 25, 2013 — Art & Design
Functional flash drives come in every possible theme and shape you could imagine, and if you can’t find what you’re looking for today, it will most likely exist within the week. Functional USBs are one of the most useful inventions released in the past 10 years. They have grown from something useful into an absolute necessity in today’s hi-tech world. Having the convenience of sharing and transferring mass amounts of data in mere seconds with a device smaller than your finger would have been unthinkable 20 years ago.

From recycled material functional flash drives to odd steampunk-inspired USBs and even glamorous crystallized USB jewelry, there is a memory stick that will suit your style and needs no matter what you are into. There are even various websites online that will make customized functional flash drives for personal and corporate use. The latest USB style that has been emerging is the credit card shaped drives that fit right into your wallet.
