During the MakerFaire Hannover 2017 a young Steampunk visited the booth of the Arduino Group Hannover together with his father. He was very interested in the USB sticks. After only two days I got an email. He sent me a link to a video, in which he showed the building of a stick: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=17N00bFfupE.
Fantastic work, Marc!
Someone has stolen my instructable! Stolen Instructable. Any possibility to hit this person?
Edit: meanwhile (2014-02-19) the stolen instructable seems to be deleted. Thanks to all who supported me!
You will find the original Instructable here: Original Instructable.
My USB stick Instructable is “featured”. It is shown on the Technology main page. I didn’t expect, that it is so popular.

A friend (Remington Brass) has turned two brass rings, which I need for the third USB stick in steampunk design. I hope I will finish it this weekend or the next.
Here is my second USB stick:

The glass lens is a light blue one, but the red LED of the stick is strong enough to outshine this.

One year ago I started to dive into Steampunk. My first Steampunk gadget was a USB stick. A part of a copper tube (18 mm diameter) and two end caps gives the following.
Looks a little boring, so I prepared some decoration:
And here is the result:
