dataSTICKIES are the next generation of data portability. They are graphene-based flash drives that replace USB pen drives and hard discs.
USB-based drives can be inconvenient to use as the positioning and insertion of the drive in the USB slot needs to be done precisely. When the slots are at the rear of a device, as is the case for many desktop computers, this task becomes even more troublesome.
dataSTICKIES solve this problem by carrying data like a stack of sticky-back notes. Each of the dataSTICKIES can be simply peeled from the stack and stuck anywhere on the optical data transfer surface (ODTS), which is a panel that can be attached to the front surface of devices like computer screens, televisions, music systems, and so on. The special conductive adhesive that sticks the dataSTICKIES to the ODTS is the medium that transfers the data. This special low-tack, pressure-sensitive adhesive is capable of being reused without leaving marks like a repositionable note. When the dataSTICKIES are being read by the device, their edges light up.

Wow usb plug in is way too hard guys!!!!!1111
This is such a gimmick lmao, it really doesn’t solve any problem. I can bet you five bucks that this isn’t the future.
This is almost as useless as the 3d on the 3ds and at least that gives you a headache, real talk.
Yeah, having a bunch of shit stuck onto your monitor is clearly an improvement. Nevermind that it seems like these things would break/tear/wear out easily. THE FUTURE.
Hey monitor manufacturers, you should add this very specifically designed and probably very costly thing to ur shit because its super rad and the future!!!!111
I mean nobody wants to actually take the time to plug things in that takes like 5 seconds how un-rad and unfuturistic!!!
Oh fuck, where did my datasticky go, I must have lost it because it’s like 1cm thick… Probably got blown away by the wind.
Oh well, better buy more because its rad!!!
Oh cmon guys it’s an interesting idea. Hell for all we know it’s a stepping stone to something greater.
Even if it’s a gimmick and yeah USBs work just fine it’s a really interesting achievable idea and a goal for someone to aim for.
