Introduction: DIY Lego USB

In this instructable I will show you how to make a mod and make a Lego thumb drive, so get out your old Lego collection and start building!

You Need:

-Thumb Drive
-Lego bricks
-Super glue
-Razor blade

Step 1: Taking Apart Your Drive

First, take apart your thumb drive by cutting it open with the razor, then take the drive part out (without breaking it), and size it up to a Lego brick to determine what size you'll need. Then, head to your work place for the rest.

Step 2: Modding the Lego Brick

Now get out your dremel or drill and drill out all the insides of your Lego brick, leaving only a "trough" which your drive will go.

Step 3: Sanding Down

After your Legos insides are out you're going to sand it down to the size of two flat Legos, so stack two flat Legos on top of each other and trace a line onto the brick where your gonna shave off, look at the pictures for more help. I used a dremel to sand the brick down, on my first one a used a file but that took almost an hour. Amost Done!

Step 4: Making the Drive Fit

My drive didnt fit in the Lego brick so I had to widen the sides, so I took a drill to the sides and made it a little wider (You are most likely going to have to do this). Then, cut out a slot for the drives metal thingy.

Step 5: The Bottom

To finish your drive, take a flat brick and shave off all but two of the dots (this makes it so the bottom will fit into the other brick better) so your drive will fit, then simply glue the bottom piece onto the hollowed out shave down brick and your Done!

Step 6: Finished!

Here is the finished product.

    This was easier than I thought. Nice tutorial!

    I have to make one of these. I think I have over 10,000 bricks.

    i can't made it


    Pretty cool idea. I store all my Lego Digital Designer stuff on mine.


    or maybe it could retractable?

    could you have a sheath on it?

    Yes you could. I need to update this ible soon, I changed the design a little and I'll need to show how to make the sheath aswell

    Where did you get so many Legos from?

    The store, obviously. Or the internet. I have a drawer full with perhaps that much.
