Split Stick: Two USB Drives in One

Split Stick: It's Two USB Drives in One
Have you ever thought to yourself, "this two-gigabyte USB drive is okay... but how much cooler would it be if I taped two of them together!" No? Well neither have we, but apparently someone did, and gave birth to the Split Stick.

The Split Stick is a double-sided USB drive -- slide the button one way to expose the port for a two gigabyte flash drive, slide it the other to reveal the port for yet another two-gigabyte (GB) flash drive. It's a boon for the über-anal, who think that putting personal and work files in separate folders isn't nearly enough separation. Of course, you can divide it up any way you like -- videos on one side, music on the other; clean files on one side, dirty (if you catch our drift) stuff on the other. You identify which side is which by having custom text or icons laser etched on each end.

The Split Stick is just the latest product being offered by Quirky, a site that accepts submissions for product designs from its community of users who then vote for the designs they like best. The winners are then given a chance to actually go into production.

The best part is that some of the $19.99 that the Split Stick (which comes in eight different colors) will cost you goes right back into the pockets of the community at Quirky. Including both the designer and those who voted for the product.
