Red Dot Award winner dataSTICKIES aims to replace the standard thumb drive.

The winner of a Red Dot Design award, dataSTICKIES is a design concept for graphene-based data drives that are stacked like the popular office supply.

Designed by Parag Anand and Aditi Singh, the concept flash drive aims to solve the inconvenience that comes with the size and positioning of USB-based data drives.

dataSTICKIES can be peeled off the stack and stuck on the Optical Data Transfer Surface, which is a panel attached to the surfaces of devices like computers, tablets, and music systems. The dataSTICKIES have a conductive adhesive layer that acts as the medium for the data transfer. When the dataSTICKIES are being accessed by a device, their edges light up.
