Step 1: Tools 'n stuff needed
- lonely USB cable (doesn't matter which as long as it's USB type A male)
- insert-type USB drive (other type may be too big to fit)
- optional: Key ring
Step 2: Surgery of Usb thumb drive
Step 3: Strip off the plug
Step 4: Remove useless stuff!
Step 5: Glue it back together!
Step 6: Conclusion
I've added a keyring to the end of the cable to add to my keyset, or you can add it to a zipper, or let it hang on your car mirror. You can have many ways to show your geekiness.
It's always fun to see the reactions of people when you lend your thumb drive, I think it's priceless ^_^ Keeping the idea of the cutted usb cable would be of making a wireless mouse with the wire coming out, cutted then having the corresponding cable cutted on the computer, this would make a nice prank (note!) without thinking of the office technical support seeing this ^_^
