Geeky Gadget #2: Cryptex Flash Drive

I came across this amazing gadget while browsing Reddit. This has to be one of my favourite geeky gadgets of all time. This is a Cryptex Flash drive. Many of you might know about a cryptex from reading (or watching) Dan Brown's "The Da Vinci Code", but for those of you who don't know what a cryptex is, it is basically a portable vault that contains secret messages.

Now, the amazing gadget above is a fan-made, and sadly it is not available to buy anywhere, which is a pretty bummer. But i do really hope they start manufacturing it because I would buy it in less than a second. I'm sure many of you have nosy friends and family, and just like me, you would want to hide all of your digital stuff from them.

Here is another picture showing all of its parts:














Well this is it for my second Geeky Gadget, hope you guys have a great Wednesday.

Carry on Super Geeks!

  3. Haha, that's a pretty awesome looking flash drive but surely it would be sort of inconvenient cause its quite big and heavy looking

  5. That looks very neat. It looks like it would be a good item to have for those that like their privacy. I've never seen the movie, but I'm guessing the numbers on the case are used to unlock the case, but it would be even better if there was some sort of passcode that you had to enter when trying to access the files after putting it into a computer, with some sort of fail safe if too many attempts are used, such as sending electricity through a computer to fry it, a fail safe that resets as much as the owner wants to.

  6. Oh man, nobody I know could unlock one of those - someone should start producing them.

    Sure, it wouldn't be the most lucrative opportunity, but profitable certainly! Got several customers right here!

    Awesome blog, loving the content I've read so far. Followed!
