Memory Hoarder: Recycle Old Memory Cards in a Flash

It seems that no matter how hard we try to keep our tech stuff neat and tidy, we always amass piles and piles of obsolete gadgets. Things like old phone chargers, unneeded discs – and memory cards. Scads of memory cards! This funky design would actually take all of those old microSD cards cluttering up your workspace and turn them into something much more useful: a USB flash drive which is more than the sum of its parts.

Designed by Fang-Chung Tsai, the Collector USB Flash Drive would have its own base amount of memory. Add up to three microSD cards and you have got yourself a decent amount of storage space for only the cost of the original flash drive. The Collector is sadly not in production at the moment, but if this baby ever becomes a real-life gadget there are throngs of geeks out there who would love a storage solution like this.
