Ever lost a jump drive? Well I haven't, but apparently there are some folks who lose them regularly! This idea is for them.
This looks nothing like a standard folding jump drive (see link). Instead of folding like a jack knife, the USB port folds over flat-ways. It is spring-loaded, and stores a
charge that is recharged whenever it is plugged in.
If you lose it, simply press a button on a small keychain fob, and it JUMPS into the air with a loud CLICK!
Normal folding flash drive
