haptic USB

With the increase of computer jobs, the number of usb-sticks has also grown incredibly. They make it possible to transport datas very easily, but one big problem is that without computer, it is impossible to find out if there is any space left for adding new data.
haptic USB is a concept, that solves this Problem. Depending on the proportion of used space and non-used space in usb, a pattern protrudes from the surface. As we can find out about the status both by seeing and by touching the surface, it even works in the dark and for the blind.
