A Recyclable, Paper USB Drive

Tech News Daily: USB drives can take on all kinds of shapes, limited only by the size of the port. Intellipaper plans to roll out one with a memory chip embedded in a sheet of paper. That not only makes it about as small as possible, but also foldable and thin as a sheet of card stock. (Paper USB Drive, PC hardware)

wow I wouldnt mind these for the future, especially if it were cheap like the article claims.

1$ per 100mbs aint too shabby. I see integration into business cards as a real booming market for this.

I'm sorry, you think $1 per 100 megabytes is cheap? That's $10 per gigabyte, and I can get a 16 gig flash drive for 30 bucks.

i doubt you'd want large files on a piece of paper that can be easily deteriorated. these devices are short term only. with the 66Mb limit, you're better off just using cloud to send files

I can see advertising going big with these little things. Distribute media to people via these, or find some system that can be transferred to phones. Imagine being able to 'fold' the usb into a micro-usb port and it will still work.
