Russian Steampunk Flash Drive Answered

Here's a nice flash drive mod which seems to be accomplished by sticking ye olde standard flash drive inside a lot of other metal bits. OK, that sounds simple, but the results are quite nice. Check the link below for lots of build shots.

Steampunk is modern technology dressed up to look like technology that was being produced about the time steam engines were state of the art.

 Remember the movie "20 Thousand Leagues Under the Sea"? All the cool underwater gadgets? Mix brass gadgets, cool inventions, sometimes science fiction sometimes victorian period stuff ( a made up victorian period though one with gadgets) Think of time travel movies with cool time travel machines that go back in time...google steam punk and click on the images tab :)

Steampunk is an antique-futuristic art style. Think of it as what people in the 1920's would have imagined what things would look like today.  Most electronics are made to look as if they are steam-powered with many gears and such. 

Just an easy explanation, it is a lot more than just that though.

Do you rotate it to recede it into the housing? That'd be cool.

I PREFER a TOUCHPAD. I REFUSE TO USE A MOUSE. anyway, ctrl-clicking is just me being lazy. i can right-click with this, it's just harder.

only if you don't use them for a while. they're the only kind of input device that i'll use that moves the courser around the screen and clicks it.

no; i just really, really hate mouses. mostly because you can't operate them easily with one finger.

You mean to open a new tab? If you push both the left and right click buttons at once, or right click and select, "Open link in new tab," it will accomplish the same thing.

Assuming your laptop has a standard mousepad, I find it easier to click both at once. Just put your finger in the middle, where the two buttons touch and push. Of course everyone has their own preference, though.

I would never get anything done with this.

I'd spend all my time playing with the gears....

Its not just stuck on- twisting the gear on the end either extends or retracts the connector.

It's not just "bits stuck on" - according to the how-to, some of the parts can be moved and twiddled with.
