How To: Waterproof your thumbdrive

Waterproof your thumbdrive

Systm is the Do-It-Yourself show designed for the common geek who wants to quickly and easily learn how to dive into the latest and hottest tech projects. They will help you avoid pitfalls and get your project up and running fast. In this DIY episode, see how to waterproof your thumbdrive.

Got five minutes? You can make any USB Thumbdrive waterproof with epoxy and a popsicle stick! Your USB Flash Drive need never fear the washing machine again if you waterproof it... if you've got ten minutes and a popsicle stick, you can do this!

Cracking a drive and coating the innards with epoxy is somewhat more compact than, say, stuffing your drive into an Otterbox, tho we've done hideous things to an OtterBox 1000 without damaging the contents.
