Although Facebook, smart phones and online stalking have made business cards redundant, there’s a certain old-world charm about the actual exchange. There’s also plenty of unspoken rules and subtle nuances. We’re pretty sure you can recycle most of these when you start handing out your disposable, personalised USB sticks.

Dreamt up by designers Alexei Lyapunov and Lena Ehrlich, the disposable USB stick is a business card for the 21st century. As the name suggests, it’s a series of low cost, cardboard based flash drives you can scribble on and hand out to randoms you meet at art launches. Designer can upload their portfolios, musicians can do the same with their music, and the rest of us can think of dumb shit to throw on the cards.

Best of all, you get that tangible exchange of goods. And just like a business card, you can do that thing where you study it really intently and make sure the other person sees you place it in your wallet/purse.

Now, technically, this would be the part where we embed that famous business card scene from American Psycho, but we already did that last week in a post about the transparent iPhone 4, so, you know…

Oh, fuck it:
