USB key holder adds memory to your lost keys


Here’s a nice idea of how not to lose your personal data along with your keys. We just wonder if now that it’s so easy to find your keys, will you remember where you put your car?

    I wouldn’t trust the weight of my keyring on a fragile USB connector. I wouldn’t trust a USB flash memory wouldn’t get destroyed. The lever angle looks all wrong.

    House keys (front and back, main and deadlock), Shed key, Garden gate key, Car key (and remote locking fob), Bike Key, two securid tokens, probably weighs in at about 150g.

    agreed, it sort of begs the holder to be tilted upward with a little rack to support the weight. Good idea though, especially if the USB strip can be functional (lock your computer when you lock your door).

    Hooks always worked for me.

    This would be a decent use of wireless USB; locking/unlocking the computer, syncing data etc.

    The stress would be much better if it plugged into the top of the strip.

  5. monopole says:

    The big problem here is the weakness of the USB eyelet. I’m always looking for metal USB keys which are resilient enough to survive my belt keyring. An active hub, with a status lamp, if not a beeper would be excellent to remind you to plug in you keys. This could be coupled with an automatic sync of useful data and podcasts to/from the key.
