Here are two stop motion videos that I made to showcase the mod. Thanks to @harryneopotter for helping me out how to make one, and I finally made some use of the dumb ZTE blade that I have.

This mod was made from a lego set that I had lying around with me for over 20 years now! And BTW, this mod was ready the day we were discussing about having a USB mod contest. I saw this box lying and the discussions were going on and I simply got started.

This is a USB Juggernaut Mod, which allows you to safely stow your usb inside and take it out as well. The usb comes out with a piece of lego to it, and can be used normally.

Makes for a great desktop decoration or conversation piece in office if kept on your desk. I know everyone who's seen it once had wanted to see how it works.

Operating mechanisms are dual, One is a reduction gear operating the arms that open and close the trap door. This comprises of 3 gears in series with a arm-lever operating them.

the second one is a rack and pinion type operation ( sorry is hidden inside cant really take pics ), which is operated by the wheel on the side. The wheel drives a small gear inside which pulls/pushes the USB in or out of the device. The USB is on a smooth lego piece so that it can slide effortlessly.

Please note. Other than a piece of double sided tape to hold the Pen drive in place, this is made entirely and completely from Lego pieces only.

Lego USB pen drive mod 2 - YouTube




There.. Thats my mod.. the secret is finally out.. Dunno how cool it is.. but it was really really special to me, since I got to play with my Lego set after more than 15-17 years!!! And I am proud of it.

Here, lemme crush everyone further it's a transformer in making. It will be able to transform into a futuristic recon vehicle and shoot bb bullets. It'll have a pen drive on its arm, so that I qualify in this competition.

Even I'll be posting a MOD looking at all this has woken up made my inner modder too.

BTW, is this a modding contest or a DESIGNING contest because except a few all seem to be superficial designs only ! And related to PenDrive very minutely just for the name sake.

I'll definitely incorporate an electronic mod.

@JD666

What does that design-Mod actually do, is it a very complex Pen Drive storing Lego Awesomeness ?

Maybe your internet connection is slow. It may take some time.

The mod contest requirements also stated that the usb must be usable. This is a pendrive storage mod, as well as a great conversation piece on anyone's desk, while being functional.

You can simply pull out the usb when its fully extended, and plug it in, and put it back the same way. Or use a usb cable, or for that matter plug the whole contraption directly if your laptop is at the same height.

I wanted something mechanical, imposing, impressive, thats why its what I call the mighty USB juggernaut. That shows off the tiny, but super impressive USB drive that has revolutionized how we store, share, transfer and collect data!
