    My two for work are Sony drives epoxied into babies pacifiers/binkies. Looks nice hanging out the front of my desktop at work. :lol: Maybe we should do a "show your USB key" thread after this mod.

    Mod on and have fun!

    Or make it into a french fry, or a piece of toast so it looks like you were trying to feed your computer.

    Make a tiny snow globe, fill it with mineral oil rather than water and mount the innards within the tiny winter wonderland and have the usb plug coming out of the bottom...

    ...obviously :D

    Not to be mean or anything, but when clicking on this thread I assumed I would see some cool usb mod, but instead I see all you did was take it apart. :( I sure hope this is going some where, I think we all know what the inside of a usb drive looks like.

    Thats why its still in modding. How many case sketchups have you seen? Or how many people came here to ask for suggestions.

    You have a point, but most of those people asking for suggestions already have some ideas of their own and show them. Sketchups are just like a said, ideas that they already have and are showing them for suggestions. I just felt that the title was a bit misleading and that so far nothing has been brought to the table as far as the persons ability to disassemble a usb stick.

    It'll go rancid. Use mineral oil instead. It should be clear too.
