Concept USB Drive/Battery Is At Least Clever

Designer Wonchul Hwang has an idea: it’s a AA battery with a pop out USB connector that doubles as a flash drive and a rechargeable battery, thus allowing you to power your electronic devices and… ummm… store data on them? At the same time? At different times?

Unfortunately, once you start thinking about this device you kind of realize it’s dumb. What happens if you need the data off the drive? Or need to charge multiple batteries? What happens when you overheat the battery? Do you lose the data? So many questions!

This is basically a concept so let’s all stare at it and move on, shall we? And, to be fair, Wonchul’s Wrap Stove, a heater that wraps around a pot, is considerably cooler.
