Keep losing your USB drives? No matter — once finished, throw it away.
First reported by Gizmag, IntelliPaper is a fully disposable USB drive that can be used either wirelessly or by plugging it into your device’s USB port. Created by combining paper with an embedded silicon chip, the paper USB is roughly as thick as card stock, and can be used as long as the paper stays intact.
Each USB stick can hold 8 - 32MB of data, although the team have not decided on a fixed capacity yet.
Once the disposable USB stick has been ripped from the main sheet of paper and folded in half, the paper can then be connected to a USB drive. Alternatively, to make the device last a little longer, wireless technology can connect the storage system remotely.
