Mechanical Key No6 - 16GB by back2root Mechanical Key No6 - 16GB by back2root
So this is Mechanical Memory key Number 6. It's taken approx 10hours mainly due to the detail (In my opinion this is the most detailed key I've done so far!) & having to strip down so many ancient pocket watches - I think I probably used parts from around 5 different pocket watches (from relatively new ones to watches over 100 years old).

The key is made out of Ebony - the wood is beautiful but so damn hard - Its like carving stone! . it has approximately 27 Ruby's which look great when the key catches the light, & when the Keys plugged into a USB, it glows green from underneath the gears. I'm really quite chuffed with this key as it turned out great.

Just to clarify, the gears themselves do not move, but the light gives the appearance of movement. I'm hoping that in the future I will get the gears to move, but currently its not possible. I hope you like it!

I wonder, does one get to kind of pick or guide how the end result of these could look like (where the cogs are, the general shape of wood around the usb) or what they are made of (wood, I mean)?

Gawds, you have a good camera to take photos like that! XP (mainly that middle one :omfg:)

I tend to use Kingston memory as a rule (although I think its Toshiba that manufacture the memory itself) as its incredibly reliable, fast in both read & write times & seems to always be considerably smaller than other sticks of the same capacity. I have however used Sandisk, Dane-Elec (once again - very fast) & Corsair sticks. Hope that helps - is there any particular reason that you ask?
