Boardy is a USB stick made out of recycled paper

At major events like CES, thousands upon thousands of little USB sticks are distributed, full of assets, press releases, and so on. Stop by a booth or show, get a USB stick. Usually they’re only 1 or 2GB (and dog slow), so you don’t end up using them more than once and they end up in a drawer or sitting on a table somewhere in Vegas. Here’s an idea: why not use these recycled paper Boardy USB sticks? Sure, it’s not really clear how big they are or how much they cost, but they can’t be much more in bulk than all those crappy plastic ones.

I’ve taken issue with cardboard computing before, but this seems like a perfect application. Not necessarily disposable, but not a damn ecological disaster if it does get disposed of.
