"We Entertain When It Rains"  

Gear & Gadgets...


We thought this case looked familiar when we first opened the package.  It reminded us of the cases we got with our Iomega Clik! drives... same external dimension, internal cushioning material, and clasp.

The Digital Foci case differs in that it was made to securely hold and safely transport all of the current Flash formats (CompactFlash, SD, Sony Memory Sticks, SmartMedia, etc...) one may have in their collection.  They accomplished this by using cleverly cut wells.

The wells were designed to hold the cards in place, but also have enough spacing on the side to let users grasp the edges to lift the cards out.

Users can also stack different formats on top of each other, increasing the number of cards which can be carried.  The maximum number of card the case can hold is eight.

Flash Card Case

By Wan Chi Lau

If you don't have more than one format you need to support, then you clearly don't have enough gadgets.

If you do have a "normal" collection of gadgets (cell phones, digital cameras, MP3 players, videocamcorders, etc...), then you know that they will use different Flash Memory formats.

You will also know how annoying it is that they all use the same clear rectangular storages cases, which look the same but are not interchangeable.

Digital Foci has provided a nice solution to the transport problem with their aluminum travel case.
