Here’s a set of tear-off USB drives made from recycled paper. That might sound like something you could accidentally crumple, but Gigs 2 Go flash drives come with a memory chip that is shockproof and waterproof. The drives do not require a cap for protection. They come in handy if you want to hand off notes or presentations on the fly. (Alas, we’re told the tear-off laptop is still a few decades away.) Can be engraved with up to 30 characters or a logo. Available in 1, 8 and 16GB; starting at $24.95 for four tabs at www.gigs2gousb.com.
