This is a good idea. You can also piece together several USBs into a USB Transformer, and brand name it USBot :) and people will feel compelled to buy the whole set, and later make movies about it.

Second that HM, I can see lots of video data rate uses for security and video portability. Can you say cheese for your mug ? ;-)

I'm surprised that at least some level of security isn't present on all flash drives. The Cryptek is pretty spendy. Certainly it appears to deliver serious security, but at a cost that puts it out of the market for most people. Lighter weight encryption would do for the majority of people that just need to be safe from the accidental loss of a driver rather than from a targeted theft.

USB 3.0 will add many more innovative gadgets to this list.

I like your list Sylvie! BTW, I didn't see any USB-3.0 gadgets? Windows 8.0 supports USB-3.0! MP Divakar

Talk about an 'in your face poof!'... MP Divakar PS: it is quite easy to implement a squib that pops a small explosive-laden capsule in the USB. I have used something like that for activating an electrically-fired spinning mass gyroscope.

It is very good collection of different USBs, some are very extraordinary and some devices have become most used as well, USB devices for the computers have become like an ornament for a lady.

Technically it is possible and it is very easy to be implemented as well,as USB by its definition can be daisy chained upto 127 no of devices. Thats what is done in the USB hubs.

The best innovation that I could think of for a USB device is faster data transfers and instant load/unload. I would really like to see a device that you could plug in pull data off and then unplug without needing to tell it to disconnect. I am sure that the causes are valid but still, wouldn't be really innovative to speed up the whole process?

With all these lovely variations, how come no one has come up with a stack able USB, USB storage that can be connected back to back like battery cells to increase the total capacity?
