Disposable 'Fleshkus' Drives Ensure Your Memories Some Day Hit The Dump

We're a little less of a disposable society than we used to be, but that's not to say we wouldn't embrace an opportunity to get back into our formerly carefree and wasteful ways. This concept spotted over at Art Lebedev, designed by Alexei Lyapunov and Lena Ehrlich, could get us there, eight or 16GB thumb drivesprinted on cardboard and produced so inexpensively that you can simply tear one off, scribble on it, then give away to friends to share files -- just a concept at this point, but this vision of tomorrow seems awfully likely to us.

looks like a easy way to quickly share large files should be interesting if it pans out

This looks nice. Really useful, indeed. Would definitely buy those if they are on the market someday.

I could see myself purchasing a bunch of these. It would be a lot easier than burning cds/dvds as it would be much faster.

I think this is groundbreaking technology actually! So small and cheap you can rip off a tab, this could almost eliminate the need for discs in general.

If they made them environmentally friendly and recyclable/bio-degradable then they would be perfect :D:D:D:D

I'd never even thought of disposable data storage as a possibility. I can't wait 'til they start cranking these out!
