LaCie PetiteKey: Get Ready to Lose It

USB flash drives are becoming smaller and smaller, and thus easier to misplace. I’ve lost a couple, and that’s one of the reasons why I don’t buy any new ones, because they’d probably end up lost as well. At least the tiny LaCie PetiteKey will fit onto your keyring, so unless you lose your whole set of keys you won’t lose it too. It also won’t look out of place on your keychain, since it’s not too large and looks like a key.

USB Bracelet: Never Lose a Flash Drive Again

If there’s one thing that I’ve lost a lot of over the years, it’s USB flash drives. From people just taking them, to just losing them because of their diminutive size, USB drives need to be replaced at rapid rate. However, if you had a USB drive hidden in your bracelet, you’d probably be less likely to misplace it.

iBikeConsole BikeCharge Dynamo Charges Your Gear While Your Ride Your Bike

Bicycle lights generally use battery or solar-powered LEDs these days, not bike dynamos like in the 1980s. That doesn’t mean that these types of tiny power stations aren’t still useful. I’ve seen a couple of different ones allowing you to charge up your devices simply by pedaling a bit more. The BikeCharge will take this to a new level since it generates more current and is lighter than other models.

LaCie RuggedKey Flash Drive Looks Like an Orange Hand Grenade

I’m not sure how the TSA will deal with the grenade-like looks of this USB flash drive, but it definitely looks interesting. While I prefer something more minimal, the fact of the matter is that some USB flash drives get lost so quickly that it makes sense to make them more visible. The RuggedKey uses a protective orange bumper to keep the flash drive secure, and so you probably won’t lose track of it either.

ChargeCard For iPhone: The USB Cable Slims Down

This conveniently-sized 30-pin to USB connector is no thicker than a credit card but will allow you to hook your precious iPhone up to any computer for a quick juice up. I’d like it even more if it had a built in battery though.

Quirky Converge Docking Station: One Dock to Rule Them All

How many mobile devices do you need to charge up every day? The answer is probably more than one, as most of us carry between 2 to 4 devices with us these days. Quirky’s new docking station takes care of juicing up to four devices at once. That’s convenient, since my own charging spots are all over my apartment.

IKEA Digital Camera is Made of Cardboard, No Assembly Required

I’ve seen pinhole cardboard cameras before, but this is the first time that I’ve seen something like this made by a furniture giant. It was a promotional item, but it makes me think that IKEA might be working on a product like this.
