Steampunk USB Drives

I try to keep The Steampunk Home, well, "home" focused, and USB drives are a bit outside of the home. (Mine are most in use when I'm *away* from my home.) but these two were too good not to share.

Carl Ulrich sent me this one:

I took an old flash drive and with the aid of a 2 dollar cigar for the
glass tube I made my own vacuum tube flash drive. The entire project
took under an hour and costs under 5 dollars.

I love simple steampunk projects!

This one, made by Dave Barton's dad, is not so simple, but oh so beautiful:

I appreciate the vacuum tube more.
One could use cork to good effect in the stopper.

The "pretend" gears on the 2nd are distracting. No functionality? No add-ons.

It would be cool if the gears in the second one moved a little bit or something. As like the above commenter I do agree that the gears are distracting. I do like the tube one. Simple and easy to make.
