Shuriken USB Flash Drive: for DIY Ninjas

 |  |  |  |  |  August 12, 2011

You! Shinobi! I can’t see you but I know you’re there. I’ve already shown you the kunai USB drive, which is definitely fit for a ninja but is priced for a shogun. If you need a stealthy and pointy flash drive but are strapped for cash, just follow the instructions of Instructables user eyefail and you’ll end up with something like this:

Unlike most of the DIY projects we’ve seen, this one is surprisingly simple to make. Simply put, you make an outline of your shuriken design on paper, then use that to trace and cut out two halves from a piece of foam-core poster board. Then trace and cut out a space for the actual flash drive that you’ll hide on the halves. Then it’s just a matter of gluing the pieces together.

It’s eyefail’s finishing moves that makes the shuriken USB look good. A deadly combination of black acrylic paint, spray paint and aluminum foil along with quick ninja slashes to give the housing a weathered look. Go, do your jumping from tree to tree thing until you reach Instructables so you can read the full instructions.
