Here’s some old school security for high tech storage: combination locks for USB flash disks. They’re from Green House, the same company that gave us the Golf Mouse. There’s nothing weird about this product though. Weird.
It’s basically the same as its bigger brothers, the ones that secure bicycles, doors, or lockers. Just set a 3 – number combination, fit it onto a flash disk’s USB connector and voila. Your brother can’t access his data anymore. Seriously though don’t do that. Don’t lock your friend’s USB mouse or terabyte drive. Because that would be fun. Security is serious business.
The USB combination lock can be yours for the low, low price of ¥500 (Appx. $5.50 USD) at rakuda – net. I expected Green House to come up with a door than can only be opened by a USB key. Not this. I guess I’ll have to count on Brando for that.
