We’ve all seen notices at stores, libraries and other public places with tear-off information at the bottom. Someone is selling their sofa, or looking for people to fill out their carpool and the notice has a bunch of tabs at the bottom with a phone number or email address you can take with you.
We may be looking at a day when that tear-off info is in the form of a flash drive, thanks to work being done by the Art Lebedev Studio, makers of the very cool but wildly expensive Optimus Maximus keyboard. While flash drives are being sold at your local Best Buy, they’re handed out pretty freely to media at trade shows, and it’s starting to make sense that they might become disposable. The Lebedev design uses very thin cardboard for the body of the stick, with an area that can be written on in pen. The concept is shown in 4, 8, and 16GB capacities. Maybe the next time you take info from a local bulletin board, it will be on something like this.
