The self-destructing hard drive

Your bank details. A virtual paper trail of all your old addresses, phone numbers and "in case I forget" password notes. Your fool-proof strategy of how to dominate Football Manager. All at risk of being used and abused by the person who pinched your hard drive. If only there was a way of destroying your data remotely...

Inspired by the likes of Mission: Impossible and countless espionage thrilelrs, the Autothysis128t doesn't mess about when it comes to data protection.

Should someone steal the 128GB solid state drive, the first line of defence they'll come up against is the Token - a touch-screen key card that will require the user to input your chosen PIN. If they try the wrong code a preset number of times, it will cause the drive to physically destroy itself.

If you don't want to risk someone bypassing this Token, you can send a text message to the drive with a preselected 'kill message'. Unfortunately this doesn't cue a small explosion and satisfying trickle of smoke, but a remote fragmentation of the NAND Flash storage within the drive. But still, it's the most MI5 gadget you'll probably ever own.

Anyone reasonably paranoid enough about their data security will have to shell out £1,027 for peace of mind. That, or you could just save things in a Cloud system. We hear they're very secure...
