USB Floppy

Charles Mangin created the most retro USB-drive you have seen by slapping together a couple of old floppy disks and a USB key. From his Flickr photostream, he explains: "I extended the original cable from the business card USB drive, and routed it through a small piece of plastic, glued in place just inside the opening. This lets out just enough of the cable to plug into a hub or laptop, but prevents me pulling the wires all the way out."
