We have one question for the good people from GIGS.2.GO: why is this project only a concept and not a real thing we can buy?
The idea is simple: it’s a pack of four 1-gig thumb drives made from moulded paper pulp, about the size of a credit card. You could stick a pack in your wallet. Need to share data? Tear a stick off and boom, data shared. The appeal is obvious: we live in an age where sharing data means more than passing around physical folders, and sometimes it’s easier to simply pass on a data at the moment rather than email later. Even sweeter is the fact that GIGS.2.GO is made from recycled products, is biodegradable, renewable, lightweight, and cheap enough that you won’t mind giving tabs away.
