RedKey : Worlds 1st easy to use Computer Data Erasing Device

What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Redkey USB addresses the problem of your personal information being discovered when a computer is disposed of. Personal information or “data” as it is known, can easily be retrieved from computers. In many cases - even after it's been deleted.

The RedKey uses a special process to permanently & securely destroy all data, to the point where it ceases to exist.

This helps you because after it has been used, you can safely dispose of a computer in any way without worrying about your data subsequently falling in to the wrong hands.

Redkey is specifically designed to be easy to use. Just plug it in to a spare USB port, then switch on power to initiate a wipe. It is designed to work automatically and minimal interaction is required. This will be a world first - It's a powerful tool.

Using the Redkey is intuitive but will be supplied with fold-out, easy to follow instructions. Further support will be available online through a dedicated Redkey website. There is also an optional advanced menu area built in, which allows some settings to be customised (ideal for IT experts).  

All Kickstarter reward tier pledges will also now receive a handy 16GB “BlueKey” too. It's ideal for storing files on prior to wiping with the Redkey. All kickstarter reward tier pledges will also be granted free access to a remote update service for life.

Risks and challenges

Everything for this project is lined up properly and ready to go. Once the fundraising period ends, I’ll continue to work hard to make everything happens according to schedule, at the high levels of quality I demand myself. Sleepless nights, working weekends - all of the fun that comes with running your own business. I've been doing it for years and I'll be doing it right up until I get a message from you saying you have received your Redkey, and that you are pleased with it.

Thank you.
