If you are searching for a unique and secure way to generate passwords away from your computer and possible third-party snoopers. You may be interested in a new mechanical cube password generator aptly named the Ultra Password Cube. Designed by Anthony Weston the mechanical tube password generator takes the form of a non-electronic password system that utilises two distinct sources of randomness to generate and store secure passwords.
The Ultra Password Cube has this week launched via Kickstarter to raise the AU$60,000 required to take the design into production. Check out the demonstration video below to learn more about how the system functions. “Ultra PC devices are non-electronic and so they cannot be hacked online! This greatly minimizes the extent to which your online security, in any given context (such as banking), may be compromised by malicious third parties. Once configured, you may read off your passwords simply by glancing at your Ultra PC device. Even if a malicious third party sees your Ultra PC device, it is unlikely that they will be able to divine your passwords from the static device! Moreover, at any given point in time, you may change your passwords by simply physically manipulating your Ultra PC device to procure a new set of highly robust passwords.”
Pledges are available from AU$80 or roughly £44 with worldwide delivery expected to take place during December 2018 if all goes well and the crowdfunding campaign is successful.
