The drive in Action
The drive in Action

Store, share, and transfer your files with the Nayano Outrider, the flash drive that allows you to quickly detach it from your keychain to wherever you need it, and then re-attach it back on, instantly. The ultimate USB flash is made of a durable metal housing, that is fast and will last. Lost drives, broken drives, and drives that take time to detach are now a thing of the past. The capless swivel design prevents lost caps, and allows for safe transporting. The innovative grip allows for easy opening. The rationale is simple:

Get a flash drive that won’t get lost and will last long, instead of spending less and having to constantly replace one. In the long run you save time, money, and peace of mind, knowing you’ll have your drive by your side.

Watch how tough the Nayano Outrider is!

HOW IT ALL STARTED:

Ever since purchasing my first flash drive in 2005, I have always felt the need to create a durable flash drive. Plastic drives would never last, and would always break apart. It was also a real pain to have to stick your whole keychain, with the flashdrive into a USB port. The only other option was to unscrew off the flash drive off the keychain, which itself was a nuisance.

The other problem was the cap, which would always get lost. Some drives didn't even come with caps, and dust and water would eventually get into the USB and render it unusable. Amidst all these issues, I finally got the idea to design a drive that was metal, durable, capless, and could instantly clip off and on your keychain. I didn't want to just make a good USB flash drive, I wanted to make the ULTIMATE USB flash drive, one that would solve every potential setback. And that's when I invented the Nayano Outrider.

FAQ:

Q: What sizes are available?

A: After funding, the initial run will consist of 8 GB drives. Soon afterwards, we will additionally be offering 16 GB, 32 GB, and 64 GB drives

Q: Will you offer USB 3.0?

A: The current drives are 2.0, but have been retrofitted to fit 3.0. By next winter we hope to include 3.0 drives available.

Q: Can you custom engrave logos?

A: Drives can be laser engraved and screenprinted to have logos. These are excellent for promotional giveaways and handouts for companies. Custom engraving options will be available after the campaign succeeds.

Risks and challenges

The drive is in a prototype stage, and has been tested, and function properly. The greatest challenge ahead is to raise enough funds to pay for a mold, so I can start the manufacturing process, and eventually production. I don't see any risks involved in this project.
