Ennova has announced that it has been granted a patent on a new USB flash drive with a retractable USB connector. The flash drive features an OLED screen that acts as a fingerprint scanner for data security and has a retractable flip cover that keeps the screen safe and retracts the USB connector.

The OLED screen is interactive as well as being a fingerprint reader and allows the user to choose specific files from the drive to access. Ennova Direct says that it plans to launch the flash drive under its ION Technologies brand in Q1 2010.

"With USB flash drive memory capacities now reaching 64GB and higher, user's are now utilizing their USB flash drives as full external backup drives, making it even more important for users to secure the large amounts of personal data they are storing on their USB flash drives," according to Peter Garrett, Executive VP of Ennova Direct. "To that end, we incorporated a biometric fingerprint scanner function into the design of our new Patented Retractable USB flash drive, while keeping with the popular theme of our signature retractable USB connector. We paid special attention to the design of the retractable USB connector, adding an integrated cover that when closed protects the USB connector and OLED screen-biometric fingerprint scanner at the same time."
