Mechanical Memory Cufflinks by back2root Mechanical Memory Cufflinks by back2root
This is another creation in my mechanical memory series.

I have followed on from the mechanical pendant with a new creation- Mechanical Memory Cufflinks.

In this particular design I have created two unique cufflinks, both of which feature an 8gb usb drive concealed inside. This not only removes the need to separately carry a usb key to the office, but also enables you to have one for work and one for personal use.

The item has been made from the ground up taking 10 hours to complete. I have used the highest quality 8GB flash memory in each cufflink, housed in a hand carved walnut chassis with around 30individual parts. It features a blue activity LED framed by a metal ring that shows through the lid of the key when working. On the back I have securely attached sterling silver cufflink findings.

All the watch parts have come from damaged or irreparable pocket watches that have been hand disassembled and then combined to create a true, miniature work of art.

If you like my work, why not follow me on FaceBook at this [link]

This item is now sold.

This item has recently been featured on Engadget's website [link]

Really beautiful. I found a 4GB flash drive in a parking lot today that has a horribly smashed case but is in perfect working order. I've been on a steampunk fling this week and I want to make a nice new steampunk case for it. I find your work very inspiring :)
