Okay, there are a lot of novelty USB flash drives on the market but there’s nothing like building your own. With a bit of effort and a few spare parts you can create this Cigar USB flash drive.

It has a red LED at the ‘burning’ end that lights up when it’s connected to a computer. Oh yes, and it’s made from a real cigar too. Authentic? You bet.
