The Lego USB Flash Drive brought to you by Spiked Mods.
As far as I know, I am the first to do this.
So, here is: How I made my USB Lego Flash Drive.You might want to read the notes at the bottom before you proceed.
What I used:
- Viking USB00128L 128 MB USB Storage Device
- A 6x2 lego brick.
- A 6x2 flat lego brick.
- A 2x2 lego brick.
- A 2x2 flat lego brick.
- Some superglue.
- A dremel.
- Masking tape.
Remove the USB Memory stick component from its casing.
Carve out the 6x2 lego brick, removing all the interior stuff.Step 3:
Carve out a "door" in the hollow 6x2 lego brick about the size of the male end of the USB plug, but not as big as the component's circuit board.Step 4:
Carve out the 2x2 lego brick, removing all the interior stuff.Step 5:
Carve out a "door" in the 2x2 lego brick just like in the 6x2 lego brick.Step 6:
Put something behind the component so it won't move around or slide back in. I used a ball of masking tape, and I regret it.
Put the USB Memory Stick component in the hollow 6x2 lego brick and carve out any more needed space to make it fit snug. Make sure the component is right side up!Step 8:
Add superglue around the edges of the 6x2 flat lego brick, leaving one side without any glue.Step 9:
Put the 6x2 flat lego brick on top of the 6x2 lego brick to seal them together with the component inside.Step 10:
Glue the 2x2 flat lego brick to the hollow 2x2 lego brick the same way as the 6x2.Done. Just use another lego peice to hold the cap onto the USB Memory stick.
You can also add other lego pieces to make it look...however you want it to.NOTE:
The masking tape was a little to squishy, so the component could be pushed back. Use something harder instead.NOTE:
I grinded the component's circuit board down a little bit to make it fit better.
