Hey guys!

I hope all of you are up and healthy?

I recently stumbled over a pair of nice retro-style USB-gadgets and I wanted to show them to you: An Amiga 500 USB-Stick and a C64 USB-Stick (breadbion style). <3

They are both made of a quite sturdy rubber-like material. The "floppy drive" of the C64 and the "floppy drive" of the Amiga, both holding the actual USB-sticks, are seated inside the cases. The USB-sticks have a capacity of 16GB.

Both the Amiga 500 and the C64 have a width of 68 mm (2.6 inches). The Amiga 500 is quite thick, due to the necessity of holding the USB-floppy.

The actual USB floppy elements are seated securely in the case. However, since the keychain is mounted on the removable floppy on the Amiga 500, I do not know if this might cause a problem when it looses its grip (after being detached/attached for some time) and the Amiga case might slip off.

Anayway, have a look:
