These are some of the USB drives that I have modified.
Please comment or request more pictures. Not all of my USBs mods are shown here!
feel free to ask me how to make any one of them.
EDIT: I see people liked Giggle so I'll tell you how I modded it:
all I did was take off the casing, and it was already a really small USB drive:
Kingston 2gb data traveler mini fun
I was going to put some other case on it, but it was all sealed up- so I left it as it was. I recently have acquired a keyboard from a broken laptop. I will post some pictures when I finish modding it!
But yeah, it is really nice to have one that small; I take it with me everywhere I go! Now modding that could be embedding it instead of changing the case!
Oh yeah and I LOVE my Hp pavilion dv6707us!
UPDATE:
My laptop broke so I dont love it anymore,
And wow looking back I was soo weird and immature on this lol.
UPDATE:
Kingston stopped selling the mini fun.
If you still want a very small usb, go to:

Not as diy, but still cool.

How do you take out the giggle? And I still wonder how you manage not to lose it. =P
If you look at the picture with Giggle and Sniggle together, you can see that Giggle has a longer metal piece the Sniggle, although it is only like a half inch or so.
i had one a little bigger than thegiggle.... i modded it into a Zippo lighter... its like a Cruzer cuz the wheel makes it pop in and out. you should have seen my teacher's face when i pulled out a zippo in the computer lab and plugged it right into the computer XD . ive wired a micro twin USB hub to two microSD drives {the fit is amazing} its 16 gigs and it also has portable apps installed with a zippo skin.
Another way to get a really tiny flash drive besides the Pico, etc., is to get a MicroSDHC that comes with a tiny USB adapter. You can then pull it right out of your SmartPhone and put it into an adapter the size of your Giggle. I have plans to embed some tiny USB drives in jewelery (someone just did something close. Check out: http://www.instructables.com/id/Make-a-millefiori-USB-flash-drive-jewel/ ) My way, you could embed the adapter, then upgrade or replace the chip.

here is my first upload instructable. I took a beltclip style cigarette lighter and made it into a fashionable holder for my thumbdrive

wrapping a flash drive in duct tape doesnt really count as a mod or a case. but the other ones are cool - I want to get a kingston data traveler now...
cool! (author)  berky936 years ago
Yeah, I guess soo. I was doing that to stop it from getting ruined (Static Electricity) whil I thought of something to do with it. Oh and I modded my Kingston DT: ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ now you know your ABC's, next time won't you sing with me!

I like Giggle. How did you do that? Did you build an all-metal case from scratch, or is it cleverly painted epoxy, or what?
cool! (author)  CameronSS6 years ago
Sorry guys- all I did was take off the casing, and it was already a really small USB drive:

the only problem with those teensy ones is that you lose them so easily...
cool! (author)  ultrauber6 years ago
Yeah... But I am ok with it as long as my pocket has a zipper! Happy Birthday Max! Oh, I am working on the instructable for the one I showed you at school with the keys from the laptop keyboard. I'll post a picture!

post an Instructable on how you did giggle!! I would kill for a USB drive that small. Hope I wouldn't forget it in the computer though. :P
