Steampunk USB Drives

Steampunk USB Drive by Russian Modder
The cheap and ubiquitous USB drive is in fact quite a testament to Moore's Law and the art of semiconductor technology as it's evolved over the last half century or so... shoot, I remember when the first 8" hard drives on the market for personal computers would hold all of  5Megabytes. Now you can get 32Gbytes on a little $25 gizmo you can put in your pocket, or lose amongst the spare change in the bottom of your purse.

The typical USB drive is a pretty dull and utilitarian item, but these modders and their creations featured at the Design Buzz blog have transformed them into Steampunk works of art.

Here's a link to a great Maker Instructables post that can provide you with some inspiration to mod one of your own.
