Corsair outs 8GB USB drive with keypad

Corsair recently introduced an 8GB flash drive that is unique for Corsair in its inclusion of a keypad that lets users access their secured data by entering a PIN code. The Padlock 2 combines this with 256-bit hardware data encryption to guard against most types of data theft; without entering a PIN up to 10 numbers long, thieves are entirely locked out. The new Padlock shares its rugged construction with the Flash Voyager range and is consequently resistant to most drops and splashes.

The stick works with Mac OS X, Linux and Windows but also supports game consoles since its encryption doesn't depend on software. Forgetful users can reset the drive, though all data will be erased. The Padlock 2 is priced at $59. [via Hexus]

    That... Wow!

    That is so freaking cool! No more computer dependent software to run flash drive encryption.

    I love it! I want one!

    Coolness.
