How to make a Sawed-off USB Key

  1. I know a lot of you (us) are tired of seeing projects where you cram a flash drive into somethign else. But I have to admit I got a chuckle out of this. It reminds me of reading about someone putting a bluetooth headset in the handset of a public phone with a few inches of frayed wire hanging off the end. The result being you look completely insane using it in public.

    Someone at evilmadscientis already voiced the concern I would have about this flash drive that someone walking by might just toss it. It’s one thing to disguise a flash drive as something else, but think twice before making it look like trash. What’s next, flash drive in a used Kleenex?
