Boffins have invented revolutionary data storage devices that looks like post-it notes and only need to be stuck onto computers to transfer files.<br />
<br />
The tiny, paper-thin drives can be stacked on top of one another like real post-it notes then peeled off as and when they're needed.<br />
<br />
The user can then stick them to the front of their computer, TV, smartphone or tablet to transfer data from them via a special adhesive.<br />
<br />
They are made from graphene, a ground-breaking new material made of a single layer of carbon atoms, and come in a range of different sizes up to 32 gigabytes.<br />
<br />
The clever devices, called Datastickies, are still being developed but it is hoped they will one day replace popular USB drives.<br />

The award-winning design is the brainchild of designer Aditi Singh and university professor Parag Anand, both from New Delhi, India.
