Introduction: StressBuster USB Drive Mod

My first mod of a standard USB Drive using a StressBuster ball.
Credits to killerjackalope for foam apple thumb drive.

Step 1: Tools Required

Tools required:

A StressBuster Ball
A Standard USB Drive
Craft Knife or any other cutting tool of your choice
a Candle

Step 2: Make Way for the Drive

Using the cutting tool make incision in the StressBuster ball. The knife can be heated using the candle, it make better incisions. Make Sure that the width of the incision is a little smaller than the drive's width for a snug fit.

Step 3: Push the Drive In

After the incision is sufficient, push the drive in the incision.
I used spiral motion to make way.

Step 4: Testing

    A friend made one with a Linux operating system stuck in the drive. Instant stress relief: Blue screen, grab stress-ball, squeeze, plug in, reboot.

    Yeah man. I must say, I was inspired by that. I've added the credits. However, I did not remove the original casing and I used a regular sized drive.

    You have to be careful about the size of the usb mod perpendicular to the usb port because usb drives break very easily by bending. It happend to me once T_T Luckily, it didn't bend all the way off so I was able to recover the data being very careful, but not all people will be so lucky.

    Does it load a non-Windows operating system when you squeeze it? That'd be cool.

    No it's so nuts it actually loads windows when you squeeze it, don't mess with the stress ball drive, it's hard as nails...
