Hollowed-Out Spy Coins

hollowed-out-spy-coins-640x534

Unless you’re getting yourself into Edward Snowden territory, we can’t quite figure out when you would need something like the Spy Coins. Still, it’s cool to know they exist and if you want to add some imaginary pizzazz to your life, we suppose there’s not harm in using them. What they do is pretty obvious: there’s a hollowed-out center in which you can easily stuff a MicroSD card. You can also easily lose a MicroSD card by accidentally using one of these to pay instead of a regular coin, so be careful. They’re about $30 each.

Onion Pi Could Help You Remain Anonymous On The Internet

Worried about all the NSA spying? You’re a law abiding citizen but are incensed that your browsing habits are being recorded and analyzed, in possible violation of your constitutional rights? There are ways to make that tracking more difficult (though, fair warning, possibly not impossible) with the DIY project pictured above. It’s called the Onion Pi, uses a Raspberry Pi, a USB WiFi adapter and access to TOR to give you access to potentially anonymous surfing.

Browse anonymously anywhere you go with the Onion Pi Tor proxy. This is fun weekend project that uses a Raspberry Pi, a USB WiFi adapter and Ethernet cable to create a small, low-power and portable privacy Pi. Using it is easy-as-pie. First, plug the Ethernet cable into any Internet provider in your home, work, hotel or conference/event. Next, power up the Pi with the micro USB cable to your laptop or to the wall adapter. The Pi will boot up and create a new secure wireless access point called Onion Pi. Connecting to that access point will automatically route any web browsing from your computer through the anonymizing Tor network.

The link below brings you to a page that sells a pack with all the parts you need for the project. It’s $95, and a portion of the proceeds go to the Tor foundation. But yeah, you still have to put it together yourself.
