Russian-based design studio Art. Lebedev of Optimus keyboard fame has turned its hand to data storage with the disposable, recyclable "Flashkus" USB stick concept.

Made out of cardboard, these modular memory sticks would come in storage sizes from 4GB to 16GB and the concept includes a space to write the drive's contents on the end of the stick or jazz it up with a personalized design, picture or color coding.

The idea has potential for students, file sharing, or for any disposable data situation like press releases and marketing campaigns.
