anonabox : a Tor hardware router by August Germar — Kickstarter

The anonabox is an open source embedded networking device designed specifically to run Tor. It’s 100% Open Source. After years of work, this team was able to build an anti-censorship box with the security, speed, functionality and easy-of-use that is the anonabox. August Germar and his team have got something.

The first prototypes were pretty clunky, and cost between $200-$400 just for the parts, but they worked well and proved the concept. Given that the device had to be small enough to easily conceal, built with quality components, and rock solid platform they had their work cut out for them. They needed to make it inexpensive and available to as many people as possible. By the fourth round of prototypes the team had created a model with 64mb of memory and a 580mhz CPU. It not only runs the software well, it flies!

Bottom line, an out-of-the-box anonymous router can be had by backing this gadget on Kickstarter for $99. How about that?
