Artemy Lebedev Studio, known to consistently turn out innovative product design ideas has turned their attention to the now ubiquitous USB flash drive. Their idea combines a safety pin with a tiny flash drive which functions as the clasp. The Bulavkus USB flash drive can be pinned to fabric keeping it from getting lost. You aren’t alone wondering ‘why didn’t I think of that’?
