In this tutorial I'm going to show you how to make your own Lego figure USB flash drive. I've seen people putting USB flash drives into lego figures before (e.g. here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/123smile), but never anybody using the bottom part as a cap.

I've made them for my family for Christmas 2009 and the really liked them (at least they pretended to ;-))

Check out this video:

UPDATE: Since 2011 you can buy the offical LEGO® Minifigure USB Flash Drive here. But considering the price and the looks of it, I still think it's a good idea to make them yourself.

Step 1: What You Need

This is what you need:

  • a box cutter
  • superglue
  • a Dremel (Felt Polishing Wheel, different grinding stones, precision drills)
  • a small slotted screwdriver (to apply the clay)
  • sandpaper (800, 1000)
  • a black permanent marker
<p>Clever use of the large-base minfig's in order to have a cap for the USB connector when not in use. There are many other LEGO USB hacks that lack the cap.</p>
You are so funny.

Ooo for the mermaid, make the shell bra out of the single space disks! (would make it more 3d ;)

It's kinda funny because that's a male USB Jack.
thats cool, but see i if you can make a flash drive out of a doll or something so you can play with the figure and use it as a drive as well
