A quick 5 minute job to create a secret usb pen drive.

Step 1: Find a suitable pen

Take a standard highlighter; It doesn't necessarily need to be a highlighter it could be any writing implement that has large enough void to insert a standard USB drive.

Step 2: Prepare USB drive

Wrap a USB drive with electrical tape to increase the size so as to sit snug into the void inside the highlighter pen.

Step 3: Remove ink from pen

Now snap open the top of the highlighter pen and remove the ink well from the pens body.

Step 4: Seal top

Now you will need to seal the exposed ink stick. You do this for two reasons; one, to ensure ink does not damage the USB stick and two, so that the nib of the pen will not dry out and become unusable. We want to keep the pen in use-able condition once we re-assemble.

Step 5: Insert USB
