lego usb stick

Well to start. I'm an Graphic Designer and we use USB sticks allmost everyday.

After I saw a few cool looking usb sticks on the internet I thought, I can make them myself... About one Year back from now, I made an USB car. (I will upload that one too soon) Short after that, it was my dad's birthday, so I made him a duck (gona upload that one too), he realy liked it. I made myself one too... Now, a year later, my dad's usb duck died... so i bought new USB sticks and converted it to this... I made also an elephant for my dad... And yes, that one is coming on Deviant art too!

Now how it's made: What i did was, I took some old lego, and a dremel (mini tool) and I grinded it hollow. After that was done I made a notch for the usb head... then I took a plate of lego that was the same size of the brick, and cutted the same size from the bottem of the brick. So the brick is closed but still the same size of a normal brick... Then I made a shell for the head... I also removed all the round dots from the plates, otherwise it wouldend fit my usb

When I make another one I will make a sort of tutorial how I did my work.
