As data storage options have become less and less expensive, people have found themselves stuck with piles of give-away USB drives. Art Lebedev studio has come up with a green and lightweight solution with Flashusk cardboard flash drives.
The four flash drives come as a light-weight cardboard sheet with perforated edges so you can just tear one off when the need arises. The cardboard structure also makes it possible to personalize the sticks however you see fit.
According to TreeHugger.com, "Flashkus is great if you need to send it somewhere (flatpack and lightweight) or for emergency situation when an extra stick comes in handy to give-away."
The designers see items like this as the future. "Soon the flash drive will evolve into a disposable form. All electronics will be contained on the tip of a detachable cardboard module," Art Lebedev's website states.
When this detachable cardboard module eventually becomes available for consumers, the Flashkus will come in 4GB, 8GB and 16GB sizes.
