Picture of How to Make a Lego USB Drive With Only 1 Tool!

I'm gonna let you see how to make a Lego USB drive with only some Lego, a USB drive, and something to open your USB drive.

BTW: sorry about the pictures, i don't have a steady hand :)

Step 1: What You'll Need

OK, so here's what you'll need. c1, c2 and c3 are three colors that you can choose yourself. Flats are flat Lego parts.

First up are the Legoes (maybe you'll need less or more based on the size (dimensions, not storage capacity) of your drive):

2 c1 1x4 flats
2 c1 6x4 flats
3 c2 1x4's
4 c2 1x4 flats
2 c2 2x2 flats
1 c2 2x4 flat
1 c2 1x2 flat (not pictured)
1 c3 1x4
2 c3 1x2's

And the other parts:

A USB drive
Something to open your drive with

Step 2: Opening Your USB Drive

I think you won't need instructions for this one. Just open it up.

Step 3: Put It Together

So now we're gonna put it together:

1) Put 3 c2 1x4's and 2 c2 1x1's on top of a c1 6x4 flat as pictured. Maybe you'll need to put other parts on it too or have a bigger base based on the size of your drive.
2) Put the drive in and press it firmly. Be sure you press it or otherwise the top part maybe won't fit!
3) Now put a c1 6x4 flat on top of the whole thing. It won't fit, but if you keep pressing it'll fit.
4) Flip it over and put a c2 1x2 flat on it. I didn´t have enough battery life to picture this, but it´s 1 row away from the end, in the middle.

OK, so now you have the stick, on to the thing that protects it (i don't know what's that called in English)

5) Put a c3 1x4 on top of a c2 2x4 flat.
6) Add a c2 1x4 flat and put 2 c3 1x2's on top of it.
7) Put 2 c2 2x2 flats and a c2 1x4 flat on top of the whole thing.
8) Flip it over and put 2 c1 1x4 flats and 2 c2 1x4 flats on it.

Step 4: Done!

Congratulations, you're done! Now you have your own Lego USB drive without much work! If you get the part that protects the connector off of it, you can put it at the back of the drive.

no, there a lot blurry. macro mode and flash would help.

With flash you see sort of a white star on the pictures.

Flash is only good at night time and if you're taking photos of people with flash in Daytime it not good cause you get the oil of their skin showing.
