The construction is similar to other Steampunk products we’ve seen, made of brass, copper, glass, watch parts and clock parts.Â The metal connections from the brass wire outside are made with silver solder and an acetylene tourch, which gives it the unique look and feel.Â In addition, the maker, put extra time into the fitting and position of the internal components for a solid product. The Steampunk device is an 8GB flash drive with a microSD card reader at the tail end.Â The technology is make of disassembled stock product where the microSD card reader is built into the flash drive.Â Clearly the device will show two drive letters when connected to the computer, one for the USB stick and the other for the card reader. So now you can obtain a Steampunk flash drive with unlimited storage ability via the microSD card reader.Â Price is much higher then the stock product, but hey, you’ll never get a great looking, customized case like this Steampunk body.

I am still amazed at the small size of the microSD media and it’s expansive ability to keep growing in GB capacity.Â Today SanDisk is officially selling the 32GB version of their microSD card.Â Sure, it’s $200 USD but when you are an overseas airplane ride and need hours and hours of video content to stream through your 3 inch screen, this will be very handy.Â I will forget the fact that a DVD player is less than that…but we’re talking cool factor here.The new 32GB card makes use of SanDiskâ€™s three-bit-per-cell storage technology and is able to hold around 7,000 songs.Â That translates into 19 solid days of listenting to music, without break, 24/7. So forget the $200 price tag and maybe you can be lucky like me and find a microSD card, 2GB capacity for $3 off Amazon.com. Continue Reading
Great for spying on the boss.Â Spying on the nanny.Â Spying on your girlfriend [because they are the ones that always cheat] and spying on your kids. Just perfect. The fake car key spy camera does video, photo and sound recording.Â Image quality is 1600 x 1600 which is good enough for any court of law and 29 frames per second…again good enough for the court of law, although I’m no lawyer. Don’t forget the microSD slot which is the reason this fake car key spy camera made it onto this website in the first place.
Price: $36 or $63 with 8GB micorSD card. Continue Reading
