Gigs2Go Are Disposable Thumb Drives For Sharing Large Files

gigs2go

Sharing large files is still surprisingly difficult to do these days. Many people sit behind firewalls and not everyone is tech savvy enough to create accounts on the few decent large file sharing sites. What’s needed is something like Gigs2Go. It’s a credit card-sized pack of 4 thumb drives housed in a 100% post-consumer recycled paper pulp enclosure; when you need to share something, you simply tear one off and give it to your client or friend. He can keep it, or even dispose of it. Being made from paper, the drives are mostly biodegradable and each one is cheap enough that it’s not an altogether terrible idea to do this. They come in three sizes: 2GB, 4GB and 8GB, the cheapest one being only $30 and the 8GB drives setting you back $40. It’s still getting funded so we’re not sure if the product will see light of day, but you can do your part at the Kickstarter link below.
