Last month a device called Anonabox, which is designed to keep your Internet browsing private was pulled from Kickstarter. The device managed to raise $600,000 in funding in the first week.
Kickstarted cancelled the Anonabox project on their crowd funding site after there were allegations that the device was exactly the same as one being sold online by a Chinese retailer.
Now it looks like the Anonabox project is back, although this time it has been listed on Indiegogo, and since it launched just two days ago, the device has already managed to raise close to $16,000.
The developers of the device talk about the cancelled Kickstarter project in their new Indiegogo campaign, and they say that they have started from scratch with the device, and that the new device will have the following features.
- -All new totally custom circuit board avalable nowhere else in the world
- -Redesigned outer case and smaller form factor (images of the new case will be posted in the updates!)
- -Hardened version of OpenWrt the Open Source Operating system,
- -Latest version of Tor software and more secure configuration.
- -Automatic updates of Tor software (no need to configure!)
