These cutting-edge GIGS-2-GO flash drives seem to mark the moment when hi-tech becomes low-tech. Thumbdrives used to be regarded as such compact and clever gadgets that could store impressive volumes of data for easy transferal; here they are, proposed as disposable devices that encourage casual and liberal use.
The BOLTgroup and Kurt Rampton have actually come up with a very intelligent idea with this, suggesting the manufacturing of USB sticks in 100% post-consumer molded paper pulp. They would be produced in sets of four and contained within the convenient dimensions of a credit card. You can easily rip off one 1GB key at a time, use it, label it and give it away. GIGS-2-GO USB drives embody an innovative overlap of accessible physical and digital technology.
