On the left, the tiniscule toy car that came out of a Kinder Surprise chocolate egg. I have been hanging on to it for quite some time, waiting for the just the right flash drive to come along.
The right drive turned out to be a Türk Telekom promotional item, a tiny 4 GB model given to me by my dear friend Çimen.
Step 1: Taking things apart
The car is made of three separate pieces.
Step 2: Breaking things down
I target the tiny plastic bits that keep the car's upper and lower parts together. A Victorinox blade and a tiny cable cutter are my best friends here. Now the three layers (the upper part, the lower part, the transparent middle) can be separated. Don't you lose that axle!
Step 3: Rough fitting
Step 4: Downsizing the drive
So, the flash drive has been streamlined.
