Fake USB Prank




About: I am interested in technology and soldering mostly, but I am not very good at it if anyone would like to help me it will be most welcomed! ☺☺☺

Items needed

  • USB flash drive
  • An old USB charging cord
  • Hot glue gun
  • pliers
  • A test subject ☺

Step 1: What Is the Difference?

One of these flash drives are fake. Witch one is it?

My room-mate keeps on using my flash drive and using up the space. So I decided To play a prank on a him.

Step 2:

First get a flash drive that looks identical to the person's flash drive. Then get an old USB charger and take them apart.

Step 3:

Next remove the USB and chip from the flash drive. Then carefully remove the USB port from the Charging cord. Its ok if the wires snap, That is what's supposed to happen.

Step 4:

Next take the USB port you took out of the cord, Then hot glue it into the case. Be very careful to get it the right length and make it level otherwise they might think somethings up.

Step 5:

It's done now find someone to test it on. Have fun with this Please vote for me and like this. If you have any questions just ask me. And be sure to look at my other indestructibles. Virus prank

    The cord didn't work the USB drive did. I decided not to ruin it so I could use it for another project. You could do that though.
