USB drives that we carry around are made of plastic or metal and are something which we rely on to hold our data from place to place. But, what if you want to put a file on your USB drive and give it to someone to copy. That presents the challenge of making sure that you clean things off before you do that. That is unless you can get a throw away USB drive. That sounds like the future and the future is here now.
Coming from IntelliPaper, you can now get paper USB drives which are recyclable once they are used. Moving to paper sounds like something in the future, but it is here today. They can produce business cards which has a tear off piece which is a USB drive and people can then read what ever you have loaded on it. You can just think of the possibilities. You can print a brochure for your business and have a paper USB attached to it. Or an example on their site, that of a wedding invitation with a USB which could contain pictures and even wedding gift registries. The possibilities are endless for this.
The idea of becoming a paperless society has been around for a many years, but it is obvious that it will not be realized any time soon. In the mean time, it is this kind of an idea which extends what you can receive, thereby reducing the amount of paper necessary to be printed. And they offer all the pieces that you need to be able to program your own paper USB’s. These paper USB sticks from IntelliPaper can hold a minimum of 8 MB and vary in size.
This is a glimpse of the future which is here today. We expect to see this kind of technology gain rapid acceptance and usage.
