It was just another day at the beach for Barbie and friends. The sun was shining and Ken had even decided that he was feeling rather generous to let Barbie out of the house following last week's fiasco.
That was when things went horribly, horribly wrong.
Barbie was never the same again...

Okay, so this is my very first instructable, so please be gentle.
This is my rendition of a USB Barbie that I first saw on the internet several years ago. After tireless searching and vain ambition I was unable to find a decent how-to article on this particular mod. Not many drives compare to the hilarity and shock generated by this. If, like me, you enjoy the odd and oh-so macabre then this instructable is for you! Enjoy and happy making!

Step 1: Materials and tools (Barbie)

Alright, so you wanna get inside Barbie and fill her delicious innards with the power of USBl? This is what you will need:

X-acto knife
Dremel with cutting or sanding heads
Caulk Gun for silicone
Screwdriver (or similar for prying)
Rubber bands
Barbie Clothes (optional)
Stationary USB drive (no buttons, no moving parts, ect)

<p>This has shades of the Kip Kay Barbie-Cam hack!! </p><p>https://youtu.be/oEH5pMylo3Q</p>
<p>Outstanding hack!!!! And perfect for the Halloween Season!</p>
I've been half tempted to do something like<a href="http://naesdraw.deviantart.com/favourites/#/d2blxby"> this</a> for some time. Although it would be kinda weird to do it with a barbie... Any idea what else I could use?<br>
A Sock.(Maybe)
Okay wow, that picture is awesome! I could see that being awkward on a barbie, but actually pretty funny! How about a Teddy Bear or a similar cute and unsuspecting stuffed buddy? It would be kinda funny to simulate the chest burster from Alien. I look forward to seeing where you go with your idea!
Well.... I was trying to keep in the picture's theme. The trick is to keep it cool and guy approved, without sliding into creepyville. I have a 4G stick, and it shouldn't be hard to solder a old USB mouse wire to that. The trick is the vic- recipient of the upgrades.
Maybe you should add a recommendation to turn off the Computer and Un-plug it from the power supply.
Haha, i like such stuff :o)<br><br>but i think my dog would chew on barbies well-shaped rubberlegs...
How big is the barbie? I've been thinking of doing this with a batman :D
I lol'd when I saw the instructable image. Great mod.
i am totally going to do this for web design class lawl
Great and funny Instructable, good job!!!
i must kill lots of kittens then hahahahaha
Poor, poor kittens. &gt;:)
lol ... my brother always says he hates barbie so i sort of dismantled his USB... i wonder what he's gonna say when he finds it ! LOL man o man it gonna be real funny . bty thnx i l&hearts;ve this instructable i've even printed it !
I'm glad you like it! Good luck in your construction! Thanks for your kind words!
just wondering, i notice the barbie hanging from the laptop. wouldnt the leverage of her &quot;body weight&quot; damage the usb port on your laptop over time, or if you accidently hit her that too would damage the port.? jw
That is a valid concern to be sure. I think that that may happen, however she is kinda ungainly for everyday use, she works but only part-time, something about a social life or something. She really is more of a novelty item, fun to build and great for those strange looks and preservation of kittens. Happy Modding!
For all the kittens past and present that have died to make this possible, we thank you.
bahahahaha OH&nbsp;NOEZ&nbsp;THE&nbsp;KITTENS!<br /> <br />
i killed a lot of innocent kittens
Lol, their shining innocent eyes cast judgment on you from the place where dead kitties run free... :(<br />
bahahahaha (again) what a great site this is.<br />
way to many kittens just dieds
Poor kittens, why always them.... what about puppies?
or like something uglier aka fish.
maybe like mosquitoes...
well... hahahahahaha! this is so funny. I am actually contemplating doing this and using the drive at school. So funny. So unusual. I like this.(sortof)<br /> good job!
in step 1 i notice you have a red nintendo screwdriver! i have one just like it!<br /> in step 7 she looks like a zombie...<br /> awesome idea, it must be hilarious what looks you get with it...
its nice that barbie is helping in the tech field now<br />
Oh Look! It's USB Barbie. It's PC Barbie. It's Giggle Byte Barbie. It's Techno Barbie - She has a head for computers. It's flash drive Barbie - She puts her memory where her mouth is. It's secure flash drive Barbie - You can't get a word in otherwise. It's compulsive-obsessive Barbie - Not a bit out of place.
It's nice to see that Barbie has many opportunities in the tech field today.&nbsp; Forty years ago, her head would have been in the oven.

Great instructable!<br /> <br /> Ok, now somebody has to do the Ken doll... where should the usb stick out?...<br />
wow I thought Ken and Barby broke up and Barby went for GI J o did I read the tabloid wrong and Barby was using GI Jo when ken was at the office . sleb dolls these days cant keep up with them any more &nbsp; <br />
What's really creepy is Ken was originally Barb's brother, til they found out little girls were marrying them anyway.&nbsp; Then the story changed...
celebrity dolls What next. lol even Matell &nbsp; wanted Barby to hook up with GI Jo thats why Ken was originally was Barby's brother. I think GI Jo would be better for her any ways,,,, All the Military benefits, medical and education package and the hazserd pay Jo would get much beter then the airline job she had. Sorry Jo Barby took up with her pasnsy brother Ken !&nbsp; &nbsp; <br />
Insest ... Fun for ALL the family ;-)<br />
LMAO CRYING ! this way so funny we must be careful I know of some families that live like this and think it all good &nbsp; <br />
hehehe, you from Deeavon in the UK or something? :p<br />
No I am in the US that is common in the south east part of the US. What a shocker to me they would have that kind of family value across the pond. I thought the corrupted ones came over with the pilgrims and the Titanic took the rest with her&nbsp; &nbsp; <br />
Oh no we have lots of pockets of interbred yokels... We tried&nbsp; to contain them on the Isle of Man but they escaped... They could be anyone... with the unfortunate availibility of shoes nowerdays you cant tell WHO has webbed feet ;)<br />
lol I know I got 10 separated toes no webed feet here ,,,,I been around the pubs a lot but&nbsp; but I always ask the chicks for&nbsp; there Family Tree papers. I thought I had a high score but looks like some of my grand dads had a few good years them selvs . I had to go 1000 mil West and start new ground! <br />
hehehe so REALLY&nbsp; GI Joe never had a chance... You CRAZY Americans!<br />
<p>As a Southeastern American, I can safely say that incest was always a thing for backwater families that had little or no outside contact... a very small minority these days if it happens at all anymore.&nbsp; We have too many big cities nowadays.&nbsp; And stop counting my toes!!!!! ;p&nbsp;<br /> <br /> Although, I have to admit, most Americans are some kind of crazy...</p>
HUMMM! ,,,,back water families is that some thing to do with webed feet ? yes I am a bit crazy however I am vary open minded.&nbsp; yes I can see how the incest can happen when one lives in a town with a population of 50 to 60 residents maybe 100 if you count the dogs, cats, and maybe the cows. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; <br />
