So in my major we have to record a ton of videos.  We then have to turn them in to our teachers to be graded.  Five years ago this meant VHS tapes.  (DVDs were too expensive to burn a single video to hand in.)  Today that means USB drives.  We all have to label them, turn them in, then sort them out when it’s time to hand them back.  It’s really not that big of a deal in the grand scheme of things, but it’s kind of a pain in the butt.

The other week one of my classmates had one of those bracelets on.  You know, the ones that five years ago would have been only yellow and said, “LIVE STRONG,” on them.  Then she did something amazing.  She took it off her wrist.  Both ends unclasped from each other and revealed a flash drive.  My mind was blown.  Then I saw this Pexagon Technology deal…$25 for $50 worth of product.  And I saw they had these:
SOLD!  Personalized wristdrives! (I just coined the term as I’m sure that’s not what they’re actually called.)  Where Acme Corp is I could put my name and not worry about putting stupid little pieces of paper and tape all over my tiny drive.  Not a bad price either.  I think 2 GB would be sufficient, so that’s $11.53 plus essentially 50% off so it’s only $5.77 each.  I could get one for each of my classes.  And still have money left over.

So that’s what I’m working on now.  Figuring out what else I want.  There’s tons of stuff and I can put my name on all of it.  There’s an iPhone cover, but my phone isn’t yet out of the 20th century.  There’s picture frames, which I want, but am not sure if I need.  I could always gift them.  I have to get something for Mother’s Day anyways.  There’s external hard drives and these picture storage things.  I could have used those when I did my most recent photo dump onto DVD.  I’m always worried about them getting scratched.    But both of those are a little pricey if I’m getting my wristdrives, which I am.  Decisions, decisions.  If you want to help me, you can click here to see all their stuff.

    That usb drive bracelet is very cool. I’ve seen all kinds of creative usb drives, but that might be one of the more practical ones. Back in college I remember having to hand in a project or two on the 3.5″ floppy disks. It makes me feel kinda old to think about that since I haven’t used any kind of floppy disk since then.

      Floppy discs! I found a pack of old pictures the other day with an advertisement on it for NEW! floppy disc copies of your pictures so you could view them on your computer. I laughed. Who knew that ten years later photo CDs would be long outdated?

      Awesome! I must be a little behind on the trend. I was just contemplating whether walking around with a wristband on that had my name on it would make me look “special” or not. Then I realized that I don’t care. 🙂

    That bracelet is genius! I still remember when I had to carry around a ZIP disk at school because of all the space it offered. I would have much preferred at USB bracelet!

    That is pretty cool!! I have never heard of those before. Definitely what I need the way I lose stuff. It’d be hard to lose if it was attached to my wrist.
