Introduction: USB Drive Mods

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: https://www.instructables.com/id/Make-a-millefiori-USB-flash-drive-jewel/ ) My way, you could embed the adapter, then upgrade or replace the chip.

    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...

    yeah I saw that one - I wanted to try it, but my flash drive can barely fit into a return key from a standard keyboard (not laptop ones)
