Instructables
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:

material: tools:
  • 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

Step 2: Modify the flash drive

First cut off the plastic casing of the flash drive (please don't cut into your fingers, nor any important part of the flash drive!)

Then apply the clay to secure the parts (use as little as possible), as shown in the picture. Make sure not to get any inside off the metal part.
