I hate to have to keep a bunch of keys on my key ring. The keys rub on my leg when I drive my car, and it drives me insane. This is the reason that I bought one of those push button locks for the door so I can just enter a code and enter the house.
When I first saw this gadget, I figured it was some sort of Cryptex designed for hiding away secrets in the bowels of a tomb or under the Vatican. But what you’re looking at here is just a really, really cool USB drive.

If you own a notebook, you can look around some, and on one of the edges and you will find a little rectangular port that is called the Kensington lock port. That little port is also found on all sorts of other hardware including projectors and more to help prevent theft of portable gadgets.

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.
