DIY LEGO Memory Stick
USB memory sticks are practically a dime a dozen anymore, and when you combine cheap with useful, you give rise to all kinds of fun hacks and mods. Plus, many off-the-shelf designs are extremely utilitarian and boring, which is why some of the DIY creations can be so refreshing. An interesting one involves carving up those little LEGO blocks you loved so much as a kid (or may still love as an adult) and cramming some flash memory into them. Sure, it’s been done before, but the author was kind enough to document the process for those of you who may be, ummm, mechanically challenged. The author’s creation even has the side bonus of having its activity LED glow right through the LEGO brick.
Hmmm, surely my son won’t miss a few LEGO pieces . . . will he?
