Similar to the drive that shows its contents on its surface, that we blogged about last month, the “Domino Pen Drive” concept by Marcos Breder brings this idea to portable flash drives. Consisting of two drives that connect to form one Domino, the drive indicates its remaining storage capacity by turning its dots white when the drive is full and black when it is empty. Although this idea is still just a concept at the moment, we like the current trend of adding visualizations to hardware prototypes to illustrate their digital qualities.
