dataSTICKIES are the next generation of data portability. They are graphene-based flash drives that replace USB pen drives and hard discs.
USB-based drives can be inconvenient to use as the positioning and insertion of the drive in the USB slot needs to be done precisely. When the slots are at the rear of a device, as is the case for many desktop computers, this task becomes even more troublesome.
dataSTICKIES solve this problem by carrying data like a stack of sticky-back notes. Each of the dataSTICKIES can be simply peeled from the stack and stuck anywhere on the optical data transfer surface (ODTS), which is a panel that can be attached to the front surface of devices like computer screens, televisions, music systems, and so on. The special conductive adhesive that sticks the dataSTICKIES to the ODTS is the medium that transfers the data. This special low-tack, pressure-sensitive adhesive is capable of being reused without leaving marks like a repositionable note. When the dataSTICKIES are being read by the device, their edges light up.

One of the deadliest weapons of the nineteenth century was the derringer, a small pistol with one or two barrels, which could easily be hidden in the hand and used with deadly surprise. It was the weapon with which John Wilkes Booth killed President Abraham Lincoln. In 1890, a small, flat, rotary-disk magazine, seven-shot derringer pistol, using .32 caliber extra short center-fire or 32-rim-fire extra-short cartridges, was developed. Named “The Protector,” it was manufactured and sold by several companies for about 20 years. Gangsters loved the weapon, as it provided a surprise to an unsuspecting mobster or policeman. It was easily completely hidden in the hand. The barrel was only 1 5/8 inches long. When used, the barrel could be extended between the third and fourth fingers, and seven shots could be quickly fired. The low velocity, inaccurate bullet was lethal at close range. The gun became known as the “Chicago Palm Pistol,” because of it’s manufacturing markings and use by Chicago mobsters. Like most derringers, it was favoured by gamblers, who could easily hide the weapon up their sleeve.
