Step 8: WHY?!

Why would I do this, besides boredom and insomnia?

Well, the magic wallet is cool, but not practical if you have more than 10 or so bills, and you can't add more than a few at a time. Thats the reason for the money clip. One the other hand, it works GREAT with receipts.


Simple. The old wallet had no room for my baby pictures. Since I'm a guy, I rarely head to wal-mart or wherever to get my pictures developed. But I do have a ton of pics on my digital camera. Well now I have 512MB of pictures of my baby with me at all times.

Below is a screen shot of what it like when I plug in my wallet.

This is my first instructable so I'm sure there are mistakes. Thanks for looking.
where did you find the usb card<br>
lol that picture makes your baby look like he's holding the camera and taking a picture of himself like for myspace or something nice instructable and cool idea
A hem..... she.
yeah i wasn't exactly sure... i'm not good with little kids... like judging gender i guess... didn't mean any offense though
none takin.
where did you find the usb card<br>
south dakota is my favorite place ever.
eh i was stuck in south dakota, badlands.... for like 3 days straight in a RV.. not my favorite any more... badlands were kind of cool... i guess.. haha i got kicked out of Mount Rushmoore... turns out if you get naked and pose next to your state sign in that hall its illegal.
0_o um... uh... o.k.....
hey they let me do that, or was it a dream?
u are a total wierdo
I think thats the first time I've ever heard that.
same here
I have an old usb hub laying 'round... this ave me ideas &gt;:3 (making it now)
&nbsp;Just one problem... MAGNETS!!? Ahhh!!! Hasn't anyone ever told you not to put magnets near a credit/debit card? No offense put don't do that. (Also the USB memory could get it...<br />
Mythbusters debunked that myth<br />
Really? Well I don't get much TV, so I wouldn't know. Thank you for informing me.
Why would anyone wanna have magnets near their credit/debit cards? You will probably degauss your cards!<br />
And make the wearer radioactive, too!<br />
wheres the magic?<br />
woaa thats well good,neat design -sharlston
thats cool maybe like incorporate a zip or something?
And the magnets don't screw with credit cards?
i bet those magnets do wonders for your usb.
actually, a flash drive isn't magnetic media, a magnet shouldn't affect it.
Donor! lol! nice Instructable.
nice wallet 5*s
Awesome but the money clip might mess up the credit/debit card.
Where do you get a USB card like that? It's really neat. Awesome wallet BTW.
except wouldn't the money clip magnet mess up the USB flash drive and the credit cards?????
anyone planning to make this i warn you it will destroy your credit/debit card
no it wont ive had some thing similar to this for a year and it hasn't broken (i prefer the normal wallet than a clip now tho)
COOL!!! (i just found this becuase I was trying to find duct tape instructables).
tts a nice idea to have a flash drive put in there. but i think you could've used sheet magnets instead of those round chunky ones. just a suggestion! :D your baby's real cute!
I searched high and low for sheet magnets, but couldn't find any that were strong enough. So I settled on chunky round magnets.
oh! well, in tt case, i guess the chunky ones will do too! :D
flashdrive part = awesome<br/>
not bad. i like the random cool flashdrive :-)
I wouldn't feel happy about having magnets close to my cards all the time. Maybe a large paper clip, half of it secured inside the body of the wallet, would be a safer solution. Other than that, flash memory in a wallet is an awesome idea.
as the mythbusters have proven, it takes a powerful magnet to corrupt magnetic strips on cards.
For an extra $5, you could have picked up a thrift-store leather jacket, and made this out of leather and super-glue instead of duct tape. It's ok, just a little bulky.
