At first glance, a paperclip/USB flash drive hybrid seems like a good idea, right? You can hand someone a secured stack of documents that also includes a digital version of all the files. And a built-in one-inch ruler is bonus functionality.

But once you actually start working out the logistics, particularly given this flash drive’s design, you start to question whether it’s actually a good idea. As a ruler it’s uselessly short, as a paperclip it’s awkward to use, and as a flash drive $US108 is asinine for just 8GB of storage. [Frohne via Core77]
