If you ever need a small gift for someone, maybe it can be a custom pen drive.
There are people who always carry a pen drive.
In this Instructable I customized 3 of my pen drives and made them multi-purpose.
- Bottle opener pen drive
- Brush pen drive
- Pencil sharpener pen drive
Apart from serving 2 functions, they are also unique.
Another good thing about customized pen drives - you can chose what brand pen drive to use.
If you'll buy a pen drive bottle opener form the internet, in most cases you'll not know what's inside.
It can be a pen drive that will not read your data after 2 months of the purchase.
By making your own pen drive, you can choose what brand to use.
I can understand a pen drive bottle opener, but a brush or pencil sharpener? Really?
I say - why not?
Brush is not for painting or baking, it's to clean the computer.
Time to time I need to clean crumbs from my keyboard or clean the computers fan.
I always misplace things, but somehow it does not happen with my pen drives.
Now if I need a brush to clean my computer, I know where it is :)
I know it sound crazy, but it's very handy.
What about the pencil sharpener?
Some people always carry a pen drive, pencil and a paper.
If pencil needs to be sharpened, ta daa!
