Amoeba Modular USB Flash Drive Lets You Literally Compartmentalize Your Data

by Hazel Chua

I often use flash drives to share documents or files with other people, especially when they’re confidential or when they’re too large to send as email attachments. I use a 16GB USB drive, so I often already have tons of other files, some of them personal, on the flash drive that some of my colleagues borrow.

Amoeba USB

I protect my folders using third-party software, and everything was fine and dandy until last week, when the program suddenly crashed and locked me out of my other non-work related folders. Thankfully, I had a backup of my other files, but I wish I had a much simpler way to partition different folders without risking a crash, kind of like how designer Hyunsoo Song from SADI envisioned organizing files with the Amoeba Modular USB Flash Drive.

Amoeba USB

The Amoeba USB drive is basically four, separate drives connected into one: there’s a segment for personal files, a segment for photos and related media, another segment for music files, and a segment for documents. So when someone wants to copy something from you or when you need to pass on a certain file, just separate the entire thing and hand off the segment with the file to be shared. (Plus, you know, it saves you from possible embarrassment if you happen to have files on your drive that are meant for your eyes only, if you know what I mean.)
