This is one of the simplest products I have ever stumbled upon, but at the same time one of the most unique and intelligent designs. These ultra thin credit card sized USB flash drives are made out of tough plastic, shaped like a credit card and at about the same dimensions and weight, and has a USB flash drive imbedded in it. To use the flash drive, simply remove the card from your wallet, bend it at the hinge, and stick the now exposed USB stick into your computer. This is kind of hard to imagine by just reading a description, so to see how it really works, scroll down to the image gallery below and click on a thumbnail for a full size view.
These seem to be mostly manufactured by a company called Idol Memory, but it seems that to order directly from them (http://www.idolmemory.com/usb_creditcard.php) you must be placing a very large bulk order – the site is really for if a large company wants to purchase a large amount of specially designed ones to give away. For the average consumer who wants to pick one of these up, I have embedded amazon links for various colors and storage capacities at the top of the page.
