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:

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.
