How full is your USB drive?

Two USB drives to tickle you with, both tackling the problem of knowing how full a portable drive is.

Lexar have integrated a capacity meter into the front of their JumpDrive Mercury thumb drive. The neat trick is that the meter retains its display when you unplug the drive from the computer.

But the Russian Flashbag drive goes one step further. As the marketing explains, “the size of the device changes depending on the amount of data it holds … when switched off the Flashbag remains pumped up, so you can estimate with the naked eye how much more pics, books and music albums can be transferred into it.”

Thanks to Shiny Shiny for reporting.
