Ever thougt about protecting your data in the most secure way ever? This is a good method to disguise your flash/thumb/pen drive: simply put it inside a mouse.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
You'll need:
- an old mouse
- an old flash drive
- small plus screw driver (I used a swiss multi-tool)
- some solder
- soldering iron
- wires (not seen in the pic)
 
i made one with a hub inside so it functions as both a flash drive and a mouse.
does the mouse still works if you plug it to the wire too?

I believe that if I had kept both green and white wires uncut, the mouse would be working just fine.
The purpose of this project was to use a mouse's appearance to a flash drive, but if you manage to solder the green and white wires to te flash drive without disconnecting them from the mouse's circuit board, then you would probably have two devices in one (a mouse and a flash drive)

It doesn't work that way. In order to make them both work, you'd need to integrate a USB hub.
yes, you might be able to find a small usb hub to make it all fit inside the mouse
