I am the IT Geek at work, and people are asking me to get them files, or xfer large files for them
and I use (and lose) a LOT of thumb drives (I don't use our network to save on speed, and Burning
CD's get expensive and wasteful) so I wanted to create a USB drive that was both large but
not cumbersome, but something also fun.
And here is my creation
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: DANGER - DANGER WILL ROBINSON!!!
Before we begin, here is some warnings.
you are dealing with modifying a light bulb, so there is glass and sharp fragments involved
they can get into your skin and eyes, so please dear fellow user of instructbles...
wear both gloves, and eye protection while working with those items.
Step 2: Taking Apart the Light Bulb
Here is a link to removing the inside guts from a light bulb, so you can get a idea how its done.
Step 3: Ok, Lets Start
The pictures really say what needs to be said here.
Step 4: Adding the USB Drive
I cut two 1/6th inch tabs on the side of the base, to the USB drive (16 gig) would lock into place,
I used hot glue to create a seal and a good solid base for the bulb, after everything dried
i used a hot blade to shape the extra glue to look like a base of a light.
People at work LOVE the USB drive, and I ALWAYS GET IT BACK!!!
