Here’s another flash drive from the “detailed machines” series. Like its predecessors (UTLX, Ulstein, and Joy), Chieftain is made to very closely resemble the real thing. The first image below is a 3D rendering supplied to the client. All other images are photos of the finished product.
Marine Subsea is an international offshore oil and gas company. Ulstein Group is a Norwegian shipbuilder. CustomUSB is a manufacturer of customized USB drives. The event that brought us together is the Christening of their new subsea construction vessel, Sarah. Here is the result:
* This is an order from last year which was originally produced for Marine Subsea. We now deal directly with Ulstein. It is an ongoing project.
Not much to say here other than this drive is AWESOME. It is a replica of the Continuous Miner, a high-performance mining product produced by Joy Mining Machinery.
While, we’re on the “replica” topic, we’ve also done work for UTLX, Canadian Club, American Crew, Ulstein, Benchmade, and Kotex, . Can you guess which products we’ve replicated?
Ball State University has been a client of mine since 2005. They put custom printed flash drives into their book stores and sometimes give them out at various event. This is the first custom project they have done. Let’s all welcome the good folks at the Center for Media Design into our “we’re-cool-because-we-create-custom-shaped-flash-drives” circle.
Doctor Rosen Rosen is not a real doctor. Though he does have a PhD in music, as well as years of practice. From now on, all his mixes will be available on syringe-looking USB drives, appropriately named The Doctor.
So pull down your pants, lie down on your side and get ready for 2.5 ml mixus auditorus injection.
We’re building a USB chess set and the King, made by Thomson Reuters, is the first piece. Aside from being chess lovers, the good people at Thomson Reuters also provided businesses and communities with intelligent information about, well, everything. If you’ve never heard of Thomson Reuters, I don’t know where you’ve been the last 10 years.
Each drive was precision milled using the same type of machine used to make real chess figures. Logo was laser engraved into the walnut drive finish. Two circular magnets held the cap and the body together.
