Would've been interesting for fans if there was a USB Stick/Flash Drive that'd look like this.

I can recommend that as an idea, but getting the USB drive bits could be the tough part.  there's not much room unless we filled in the center area.  Still a neat idea and could be a future product :)

& I think that the center part (which would've had a light blue, semi-transparent Plastic Glass) would let you slide the the plug in & out.

Nicely done! Have you done any with the holo-array in the center?

I have some custom painted flash drives, but they're not the crystal chips.  I'll have to get a few photos of those for you guys!

Have you considered inserting a slice of light blue glass into the hole? If you're real ballsy you could even rig up an LED in there too ;)

I only mention because that was always the visual in-game. The blue light gave it a nice contrast.

It's a good idea, great in fact.  The only problem with this particular cast is that its thin (which is accurate to the game) and there's no room to imbed an LED.  As for the blue polycarb, that's something I'm looking for right now and then it's just a matter of how to make the disks perfectly shaped to fit in the space.  It was also intended to be worn on a dog tag chain as it was in the game at certain points.  Without the open center, that would make it impossible to do, but it would look nice for a display :)
