Build Your Own USB Flash Drive Bracelet

Build Your Own USB Flash Drive Bracelet

Whether you just really like easy access to your data on the go, or you like the idea of a flash drive loaded with emergency information, this DIY project should be right up your alley. You’ll need a few things to get started, but it’s easy enough to do in a weekend. Grab your duct tape, and let’s get started.

Instructables user BrittLiv used some duct tape for the strong, sturdy base of this bracelet, and a tiny Verbatim USB drive super-glued to one side (and its cap on the other) of the bracelet to form the clasp. She used blue and white thread to form the pattern on the outside, but you can do the same with your favourite colours. The rest is a matter of patience and careful arrangement of thread, tape and super glue. When you're finished, you'll have a bracelet that both stores data and clasps around your wrist via USB -- perfect for a flash drive you'd rather keep inconspicuous or only available for emergencies.

Alternatively, you can pick up something like the LaCie IamaKey and toss it on your keychain if bracelets aren't your style. Still, this is a fairly easy, useful project. What do you think? Would you make one? How would you improve the design? Let us know in the comments.
