Cryptex is a special container which has a mechanical combination lock (rotating rings with letters or digits), which people used hundreds years ago to keep secrets. Inside the cylinder there's a container, where you can keep piece of paper with secret data.
Today it's better to use a USB flash drive for data storage.
Cryptex USB flash drive was engineered in the accordance with original sketches of Leonardo Da Vinci.
The mechanical combination lock protect your digital data. You need to know 5-digit code to get access to the USB flash drive hidden inside. Only the one who has the password can use it. A great way not only to protect the information, but also to add an element of a game into everyday life.

What have past customers said about the Cryptex?
USB drives are widely available so it takes a unique approach to make one stand out from the crowd. Kindly sent to me for review I really like the design used, and in showing others no one could initially guess at what it might be.
It's fairly big for a USB flash drive, being about 6cm wide. That size if required for the 5 digit combination lock which is used to secure the drive when not in use. The code is provided, it can't be set, and it's recommended you make a note of the code before getting rid of the little code sticker on the unit. Handily if you happen to keep the nice box there is a space on the box to write the code on.
Although this feels well made it's unlikely to stand up to someone determined to get to your USB drive.
This is a really fun little item, feels very well made, and although there are lots of cheaper alternatives non are as steampunk stylish as this.
Fantastically geeky type of device.This device has 100000 possible combinations. Plus, if someone of slightly lower intelligence steals it, will probably multiply that by 4, as there are 4 possible sides to try using :)
