If you started using computers when CD-ROM drives seemed to have an amazing amount of space at around 650MB each, the fact that you can store many Gigabytes of data on a micro SD card the size of a rather small thumbnail seems amazing. At least it does to me. Though I grew up in an era when you could misplace a disk, it wasn’t going go be lost in the carpet, or even vacuumed up without some loud mechanical protest.
On the other hand, even by that time things had progressed significantly, as this photo of a 5MB hard drive being loaded onto a plane shows.
So how do you actually organize these tiny devices? Cloud data storage is a great alternative for many of purposes, but if you need to keep data on portable media, you’ll need somewhere to physically store them. A baggie or jewelry box could work, but here’s something actually made for that purpose.
The picture at the top of this post is like one-organizer-to-rule-them-all and will put an end to digging through drawers looking for that microSD or low-provile thumb drive. It can hold 8 standard SD cards, 15 microSD cards, and 10 USB flash drives. As they are 3D-printed, you can customize the number of slots for each one as needed.
It looks like a clever idea. On the other hand, I wouldn’t attempt to clean it with a vacuum cleaner!
