Mechanical Memory Key by back2root Mechanical Memory Key by back2root
This is my first attempt at some new custom computer peripherals. My first try is this hand made 1GB USB Flash drive. As it was a first go (& it was a lot smaller than I'm used to working!) if took me approximately 6hours to complete & works like any other 'plug & play' device, illuminating when its in use. Although its not in the pictured, there is a symmetrical wooden sheath that protects the USB adapter. This will hopefully be the first in many (hopefully more impressive & detailed pieces) So if you like it, keep your eyes peeled. Or if you have any ideas let me know!

Neat-lookin'! Do the mechanicals do anything, or are they entirely decorative?
