USB Flash Memory Offers Fuzzy, Buggy Storage

by Paul Strauss

USB memory sticks are a dime a dozen these days, so you’ve really got to stand out from the crowd if you want to get noticed. These soft, fuzzy critters will definitely latch on to your digital memories in a way you won’t soon forget.

Maggie the USB Data Worm by NifNaks

Designed by artist Nifer Fahrion of NifNaks, these invertebrate USB drives are handmade using wool felting techniques. Her creations include such charming characters as Maggie the Maggot and Gizzy the Data Worm.

According to Fahrion, “Maggie is smart as a whip, and can recite pages and pages of poetry… Maggie is very calm and patient and loves to solve problems. She strives to fill her life with the new and fresh in her life, and this reflects in her eating habits too. Maggie can be found dining at all the new trendy restaurants every night, and has even been occasionally accused of being a food snob. She makes a loyal and loving friend to anyone who will have her.”

On the other hand, “Gizzy will astound you with his ability to remember things – 4 gigabytes worth, in fact! He loves super tart gumballs, and won’t eat anything orange. He enjoys bungee jumping, but most days he’s content just to sit around and read a book. Gizzy is of course an amazing speller and will knock your socks of in Scrabble.” Being one to frequently assign personalities to the inanimate objects around me, I can certainly relate.

Each data worm stores 4GB, and prices range from $66 to $68 each. Since each NifNaks creature is handmade, expect to wait about 10 days to get your hands on one.

    Hahaha oh my god whats this man?!?!?

    Is that crazy or isn’t it?. HANDMADE??? A – HANDMADE – Flash Drive? Äh?

    However… I’ll hope that these worms will honest stay in their USB-Ports and not in my salad.

    The flying Spaghetti Monster from NifNaks is also a very very nice whatsoever.

    • I agree with this. It seems like they get a plain USB which costs less than 15 USD for 4 GB then the creator put some hand made art. Creative idea isn’t it?

  2. Excellent !! I work for a large distributor of usb flash drives and know that users typically get very bored with standard flash drives. We’ve sold all sorts in the past, from football stars to star wars flash drives…but they’ve definately never been fluffy! Well done Nifer.

  3. Cool designs.. liked it.. atleast it will give some soft touch to IT professionals

  4. We find clients love USB Flash sticks and this are a real peach of a solution.
