USB drives can take on all kinds of shapes, limited only by the size of the port. Intellipaper plans to roll out one with a memory chip embedded in a sheet of paper. That not only makes it about as small as possible, but also foldable and thin as a sheet of card stock.
If you receive such a card, you tear off the bit of card stock with the embedded memory chip along a perforation, fold the torn bit twice to make the drive thicker and then plug it right into a USB slot.
Intellipaper sent us a few business cards and the university postcards. We had no problem fitting the drive into the USB port on a laptop. The disk image appeared on our Mac laptop, and we could open the files on it without a hitch. Unfortunately, we weren't able to test how well it wrote data, since the first batch is read-only, like an old-fashioned CD-ROM.
