Downsizing USB Sticks: The Smallest in the World?
A Dutch Company Creates Micro UDP chip the Size of a Fingertip
Here’s a promotional item worth much more than its weight: a 4, 8 or 16 GB USB stick, no bigger than a fingertip, that fits in a wallet or hangs inconspicuously from a keychain. Made by the Dutch company DEONET, a former distributor of IT products that now creates promotional items for a technology-centric crowd, the Micro UDP-chip USB stick is relatively flat and measures only 2.9 mm thick. The company claims it is the smallest commercial USB stick to date. More practically, the stick barely protrudes from the USB port on a laptop and can be left inside the slot even when the computer is in its case.
The microsized USB will be introduced next month at PSI Düsseldorf. Several years ago, DEONET introduced what it called the most expensive USB stick in the world, a solid gold design covered in diamonds.
