Here is the answer: "Book To The Roots"

"Book To The Roots" is a modern wood designed USB stick, with Kindl adapter (micro USB). The special thing about this stick is the lasered rune. The runes are the origin of all written words and all published books on earth. They have traditional a meaning and wanna help us to find our way in this beautiful world. "Book To The Roots" translated all the meanings of the runes and assigned them to all book topics who exist. For example the rune "Urzu" means energy and implemantation. You choose that one, eg. in times of development. The corresponding lyrics are professional books.
