Welcome to the Airship USB Kickstarter campaign. This project grew directly out of the Flight Playing card project. In doing research for great items related to playing cards, airships, and aviation, I came up with this idea for an airship or zeppelin USB drive. It was a little too large a project to add to the Flight Deck campaign, and it was too cool to be abandoned, so I thought I'd produce it on its own. It’s not up to me though! That’s the great thing about Kickstarter. If you want this drive to exist, then claim one for yourself, and be sure to share it around on Facebook, reddit, and twitter. If you're obsessed with airships like me, then you know we need more airship stuff out there!

The Airship USB drive is based on the USS Macon and USS Akron airships. With their rows of square vents engineered to control moisture used for ballast, these two airships have a very unique design. Their design makes them the perfect choice for the first Flight drive. 

Right now, the plan is for an 16gb (upgraded from 8gb!) flash drive which can be upgraded if we can get past the project goal. So, if you want a larger drive for the same cost, then definitely share this project with people who might be interested!

This project comes with Two Limited Edition Tins (a third tin now available-see below) that have been modeled after vintage tin and oil can designs. If you've seen my other projects, then you know I'm a fanatic for interesting packaging. I created these designs just for this flash drive campaign. Each tin comes with (1) Airship USB Flash Drive, (1) clear acrylic display stand for the USB drive, (1) 1" pin, and each drive comes pre-loaded with airship wallpapers and airship related desktop icons that are also designed and illustrated by me. Scroll down to the bottom of this page to see the digital files included on the drives with the LE tins.
