USB paper clip flash drive

The humble paperclip has found a new purpose in this conceptual design by Emamidesign as a USB paperclip flash drive. Having a souped up paperclip that lets the recipient plug the flash drive into the computer for supplementary information to the original document is a rather creative way to attach digital data to physical documents.

With the prices of USB memory drives falling, this is a completely viable way of using flash memory.

The best thing is that this USB paperclip flash drive will have a much lower chance of getting misplaced while being attached to its document in this fashion.

Another good idea is to provide a blank surface on the USB paperclip that’ll allow the sender to label the flash drive.
