Gigs 2 Go Tear-Off USB Drives Now on Kickstarter: Pledge 2 Get

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  December 12, 2013

Earlier this year we learned about Gigs 2 Go, a concept for a credit card-sized pack of flash drives that you can “tear and share.” Inventors Kurt Rampton and BOLTgroup seem to have figured out how to mass produce the drives and are now raising funds on Kickstarter.


The final product is almost exactly the same as the concept. The drives come in packs of four. The pack and the drive cases are made of recycled paper, and perforations make it easy to tear a drive off the pack. The only difference is that the concept called for a plastic-free product, but Kurt and his partners eventually decided to add a plastic carrier to Gigs 2 Go. That’s because the drive they’re using is so thin that it won’t fit snugly into a USB port on its own. At least the carrier is made of recycled plastic.

Pledge at least $30 (USD) on Kickstarter to get a pack of 2GB Gigs 2 Go drives as a reward. You can also get 4GB and 8GB packs with larger pledges.
