"THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS INTERNET PRIVACY" said the world's leading tech experts. "Who are we to question that and why should we even try?" That's what I used to say.

That all changed, one fateful day, when I met a young girl from North Korea trapped in China. At the tender age of 15, she was sold as a bride into China and was chained down by her ankle whenever the man left the house. After her escape, she lived to share her story and sought help to find her family. This would not be such a difficult task if her family was in the United States. But the problem was that  any attempt to reach out from within China would be blocked by The Great Firewall and the IP address would be traced. If caught they would immediately be deported back to North Korea and it could mean imprisonment or even death.

It was after meeting this girl that privacy took on a new and deeper meaning for me. It was no longer just a constitutional right, but a human right. A matter of life and death. I, then, decided to find a way to help such children, to provide a device which they could use to reach out for help without the fear of being detected on the computer or on the internet.

Risks and challenges

The project spanned over a period of 3.5 years, including a number of engineers in the U.S., India and China. The program is finally completed. Four separate molds have been made. Custom W boxes and bags have been designed and is ready for packaging. Working prototypes are available. There are 4 manufacturers on standby. The product has been tested in China, India, Japan, Korea, Ukraine, Pakistan and in the U.S. It has gone through multiple firewalls and unblocked websites, all without leaving any digital footprint on the computer or the USB memory.

The W works and now needs your support to get the first production off the ground.
