Toshiba Encrypted USB Flash Drive

Toshiba's Encrypted USB Flash Drive doesn't just protect data with AES encryption, but rather a real passcode on the device itself as well.

USB Project Wall

When you see a USB drive randomly sticking out of a wall, the last thing you'd think of would probably be an anonymous file sharing network, but that's exactly what this project is all about. Started 4-years-ago by Berlin-based media artist Aram Bartholl, "Dead Drops" encompasses a wide variety of file types, including movies, games, television shows, comics, family videos, photos and even art projects. To partake in "Dead Drops", you need to first find or create a hole in a wall, crack open the USB drive, wrap it in waterproof tape and then place it in the hole, with only the port exposed. To ensure that it doesn't fall out, use fast-setting concrete to cement the stick into the crack or hole. The largest capacity drive so far was is located in Sydney - a 120GB drive installed by a Chinese exchange student. Continue reading for a video, more information and a link to the Dead Drops database page.
