The inflating USB key


It is often difficult to know how much data is on USB keys. In the past, we’ve seen USB keys with storage meters. Now comes a USB flash drive that changes shape according to how much data is stored on it. Designed by Dima Komissarov, the Flashbag comes with a micropump that inflates or deflates the key to show how much data is on it. If the key is flat, you know that it’s empty. Start to fill it up and it will expand. When you get to maximum capacity, the key will not blow up but rather will display an error message that there is no free space.
