If you carry a USB flash drive with portable apps, operating systems and useful data on it, you know they tend to look alike. This clever DIY project will make sure you never get your USB drive mixed up with someone else's ever again.
Instructables user Mahmoud Alaa put this one together in his spare time, and all it takes is a usb cable you don't need, some electrical tape, a few simple tools (needlenose pliers and electrical tape), and a tiny USB flash drive, or a tiny USB-port sized microSD card reader, if you prefer. With a few minutes work, you'll have a USB drive as large as you choose that's unlike any other.
Granted, it's not sleek or modern-looking, but it's definitely original, and all it takes is a little time and a few spare parts. You can see the full how-to with plenty of photos of the process at the link below.
