Verico Penpal Memory Storage by Verico Grip

Home > Winners > #26298


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Verico Penpal

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Memory Storage

INSPIRATION:
The inspiration came from the up dated technology trend. Nowadays people look for simple designs and functional products. Inspired in Apple Concept, we started to brainstorm the 5 Ws for our new products. Finally, we figured out the combination of a pencil sharpener with a USB flash.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
1. Adapting the COB technology into the USB 3.0 makes Verico Penpal a dust and water proof product. 2. It is the smallest USB 3.0 ever. 3. Multifunctional design makes people no need to carry lots of things, no matter at work or school. 4. Simple and trendy design.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Easy to operate, just plug and use it. It is a very simple and trendy design. The usage is ideal to cover all range of users, no matter if it is for students or professionals. Using up dated technology of USB 3.0, it makes data transfer rate faster than ever, and it could save you more time for other activities. Besides that, it is also the smallest USB 3.0 ever, which makes Verico Penpal a multifunctional and easy to carry and go product.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in May 2011 in Taipei Taiwan, and completed in May 2012. It was exhibited during Taiwan Computex in June 2012.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The product will be divided into two parts. 1. Housing The main material used in Verico Penpal is Zinc alloy. To manufacture Verico penpal housing it needs 3 stages. (1). Casting (2). Surface polishing (3). Electro plating 2. The smallest USB 3.0 Flash Drive Adapting the world’s most advanced Chip on board (COB) technology, Verico Penpal is the world’s smallest USB 3.0 Flash Drive.

CHALLENGE:
Each product is individual with its own function, but combining two different functional products into one, it requires a lot of efforts and studies. At the beginning, the product we had designed was quite long and big due to the size limitation of the USB Flash, then we struggle to find a way to reduce the size. Therefore, we requested our RD team to layout a USB 3.0 to see if there is any possibility to reduce the size of a USB 3.0. Finally, our technicians adapted the Chips on board technology into the USB 3.0 and created the smallest USB 3.0 ever. After the main issue was solved, we found out that the angle of the sharpener could affect the sharpness of the pencil. In consequence, we have spent a lot of moldings designs for the sharpener, just to have the perfect angle. At the end, we have invented the multifunctional USB Flash drive with the latest technology of USB 3.0 call Verico Penpal.
