Flash drives have grown very well over the last few years, and of course, technology continues to develop and make them better. dataSTICKIES concept is one that takes flash drives to a different direction, and with a different technology. The concept by New Delhi based designers Aditi Singh and Parag Anand envisions the use of graphene in data storage, and seamless transfer of data between devices.
dataStickies concept puts flash drives in a post-it note type orientation. Two protective layers would shield the graphene innards of the drive. Data could simply be transferred by placing the sticky top of the drive against a port on the desired gadget. According to the designers, these flash drives could hold up to 32 GB of data, which we think is kind of a let down considering Graphene has often been touted as the next wonder material, and 32 GB of storage is well within the reach of modern flash drives as well.
Of course, this is just a concept, and as such far from commercial use as of now. Graphene itself hasn’t been perfected for use yet. As a concept though, it is pretty cool. And in our mind, a lot of that wow factor comes with the thought of the post-it note like appearance of the drive.
