Play the data storage game with Domino flash drives


Looking at all the (sometimes frightful) innovation that is happening in the world of flash drives, I am reminded of the period when I bought my first pen drive - a 256MB, bulky-by-today's-standards USB stick for which I had to part with a princely sum of $100. The intense joy that I experienced for being the only one at my workplace to have a pen drive is indescribable. That was simply ages ago. Look around now and there are numerous drives available, and at dirt cheap prices too. And the focus is not only on how big your capacity is, but also on how unique your drive design is. Fortune cookies, Star Wars Mimobots, Frosted Donuts, they are all there for you to pick and choose from.

Add to that this latest design concept from Marcos Breder - a 2-part USB drive that looks like a domino. You open up the two halves of the domino piece and you get 2 separate USB drives. The best part of this rather clever design is that the dots on the domino visually indicate how much of the drive is still available for storage - when all the dots are white, the drive is full, when the all dots are black, the drive is empty. Pretty impressive, and looks like child's play.
