I can’t even tell you how many flash drives I’ve lost over the last few years. Basically, every time I go looking for one, it’s gone. Andrew Kitzenberg, the founder of Memory on Hand, had the same problem, except he’s way more inventive than I am when it comes to figuring out a solution. The Memory on Hand USB wristband was born out of frustrations over losing important back-up documents contained on little thumb drives that are easily misplaced. They’re a fun, fashionable way to keep all your information literally close at hand.
The wristbands come in a huge variety of colors and styles, including solid colors and swirling patterns. They are one-size-fits-all, and rather comfortable to wear. If wearing them on your wrist isn’t your thing, they easily secure around your purse or briefcase strap. Best of all, the colorfulness of Memory On Hand really helps prevent you from forgetting that it’s there. They’re perfect for students, moms on the go, and pretty much anyone else who is tired of losing important data due to misplaced flash drives.
My Memory on Hand USB bracelet holds up to 2GB of information, which is plenty for the types of documents I store. I’m constantly shifting things like word docs and photos back and forth from my computer to Jacob’s or my mom’s computer, especially since my own isn’t hooked up to a printer (I know, how archaic of me). If you need more space, they also sell a 4GB version.
The geniuses behind Memory On Hand are currently working on creating an 8GB version, as well as some other new enhancements. In fact, they could really use your help raising the funds needed to expand their business. Visit their Kickstarter Project Page for more information on how you can help. They’re offering some great rewards depending on the pledge amount. I think it’s really important to support smaller businesses. Andrew Kitzenberg and his business partner, Jeff Brayer, have come a long way since they graduated college in 2010, and they seem to have the business savvy to go much further, which just means more great things in store for those of us who use their products.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
