IntelliPaper – The Paper USB Flash Drive

Flash drives have evolved significantly over the past few years. There was a time when 64MB of space in a bulky USB package was considered an achievement, and yet now an individual drive can hold upwards of 64GB while being less than half an inch in length. IntelliPaper looks to take the thickness (or thinness) of flash drives to the next level.

The idea is what it sounds like: a USB storage device made on paper. With the help of IntelliPaper, you can send paper thin flash drives in the mail alongside business cards, invitations, gifts and more. The company behind the product recently created a website www.intellipaper.info, and is selling inserts and handouts for $0.50/unit. Although the storage on these drives only ranges from 8 to 32 MB, that should be plenty of room for attaching files, images, and even small lower-quality video files.

While such small amounts of storage space aren’t that practical in most situations, it is just another proof of how far we’ve come storage technology in general. Imagine what future storage methods will look like in another 5 to 10 years. Of course with the growing importance of cloud storage, the idea of physical storage might soon be a thing of the past. What do you think of IntelliPaper, like the idea or do you feel its small storage size severely limits its usefulness?
