    in my very own opinion, this is a waste... first off: you have SO much room in there, you could be made it a 2TB (maybe even larger) by clipping old USB drives, Tiny n' tuff flash drives, and all that amazing stuff. Second: you may need to rethink the whole "let's put it in a giant cylinder and call it art" thing... it's not like you could plug it in anywhere without an extender, and even then, it's way too big to lug around! it'd be better to put a giant pack on your back for a 100PB flash storage space (exaggerating just a little too much there, but you get the point). So, maybe we could agree to, maybe, turn something as small and huge like this cylinder into something large but effectively tiny?

    errrr and what about painting the keys, cutting the F keys and softly placing a cover on the holes, making it the BEST FoF keyboard ever?

    So have you tried plugging it in yet? You would have to prop your laptop up on something and it won't fit in most PCs because their USB jacks are in a recessed area.
