Here is my USB device. The receiver plugs into the USB port of a computer and you have the 'ink pot' on your desk. The 'feathers' are each memory sticks. The pot goes to the receiver via infrared so no wires involved.
It's a way of stop keep bending down to plug your USB memory stick into your computer if you've got the tower low to the ground. Also you don't need to swap it over if you need something from another memory stick. The pot can take up 8 memory sticks which are as thin as the actual memory chip inside them. They simply slot into the little holes to fit securely.
The green light on the receiver stays on to indicate that it is working correctly, the red light goes on when data transfer is in progress telling you not to remove it.
I went in a different direction when designing this, with today's technology I mixed it with the past's technology, hence the old style ink and pen feathers.
Made in Autodesk Maya.
I will be going to London's Grand Designs in May 2011 to showcase my work and I'm considering taking this product.
