GIGS.2.GO Disposable USB Flashdrive

As USB drives these days are really cheap so I think that is why Kurt Rampton and BOLTgroup have come to the idea of making this GIGS.2.GO, a credit card sized pack of 4 USB drives. Just tear a gig if you need and its recycled paper body makes easy for labeling. Slick and simple to use, this is a perfect gadget at business meetings.

Discarded to Precious – Floppy-disk/Jeans Bag

Challenge:

– Design a product that is only constructed out of discarded materials.

Creative Solution:  Floppy-disk/Jeans bag

   

   

How it was made:

I have a tendency to not throw away anything because I always think that “Oh I may need it for a future project or craft.” In this case my mild hoarding came in handy. I looked through a lot of the random materials that I had at hand to see if I could create something new out of any of it. I stuck with using theses three items: floppy disks, an old pair of jeans, and some suspenders.

      

I first drilled holes into the floppy disks and then looped them together with jump rings until I had a sheet of 1×3 and two sheets of 2×3.

   

I then cut the jeans right above where it splits into two legs. Then turned them inside out so that the pockets will be on the inside of the bag.

I know they look like short shorts.   

I then sewed a bottom to the jeans.

Then sides and a second bottom layer.

Then sewed on the floppy disk sheets to the front and back. I also added a flap on the top where the 1×3 sheet is sown to. The suspenders are then just attached to both sides of the bag to be the straps

   

   

And there you have it a recycled bag made from old floppy-disks, an old pair of jeans and old suspenders.
