Since I was talking about security anyway…. this is a nice toy for breaking open laptops or desktops when the administrator forbade the installation of software, or you want software on it executed. This is often the case with company devices, e.g. the laptops which are supplied by banks to their 3rd party suppliers. Outsourcing is cool, remember?

This is a computer on a stick which can run a Linux kernel. In combination with some USB gadget kernel modules, it can be configured to authenticate itself as any device. All you need to do is plug it in, and iterate by brute force through the device identifiers until you hit one which is accepted to be used. Store the statically linked software you want to install or run on the stick beforehand, and here you go. So if you ever need a SSH client on a “secure” Windows laptop… putty.exe FTW.
