The humble USB Flash drive has been hit by the miniaturization ray again with Active Media Products introducing what it claims is the world’s smallest 16GB USB drive. The Wink measures just 1.2 x 0.5 x 0.1 inches and weighs in at only 1/20th of an ounce. It’s so small that looking at the pictures you’d be forgiven for thinking the drive may disappear inside a USB port never to be seen again.

To keep the size and weight of the Wink down there is no cap for the USB connector, but the company says the drive is still quite rugged. The drive is actually waterproof and is coated in a high-impact polymer outer shell, which features an eyehole for easy attachment to an included keychain. The Wink is available in 2, 4, 8 and 16GB capacities and is Windows 7 and OS X compatible.

The Wink USB Drive from Active Media Products is available now with the 2, 4, 8, and 16GB drives priced at US$7.95, $10.95, $19.95 and $37.95 respectively.
