The last PDAC thing

. . . is this tag I got at the Chilean booth. I don't know if it is supposed to do anything.

Everyone in the wine line where these were handed out was stumped by them. It looks like it is a catalogue, but there is nowhere to read anything. It looks like one of those keytags you hang by a lanyard around your neck. The whole card is quite substantial and could be carrying data in some format, I suppose.

PS. I'm back in god-damned China.

  1. its a USB...however, although difficult to tell from the photo, it looks like the graphics on the front (blue side) is on some kind of sticker that doesn't allow the little USB boner to pop out. It usually swivels out, with the pivot point a mm or two from the edge.
