If you have $99 with you that you want to spend on buying the coolest gadget in the world, do pool it in the Kickstarter funding for myIDkey. Literally, it is just a pen drive. But in reality, it is much more than any computer accessory you have now.

The name of the parent company is Arkami and these guys have started the Kickstarter project. In just 24 hours, these guys managed to collect over $87,000, which is more than half of what they intend to amass through Kickstarter.

myIDkey, the company’s flagship product, allows you to securely store all your passwords and critical information on a portable Bluetooth / USB device. It is the industry’s first finger-swipe activated wireless device with voice-search and OLED screen that securely displays logins, passwords and ID information while on the go.

myIDkey’s secure cloud-based service allows you to manage and synchronize your information across all your devices. It is both Windows and Mac compatible and very easy to install and use. It also includes storage for music, photos and files.

myIDkey is a complete password management system that auto-fills passwords across all frequently used web sites on all personal computers and smart mobile devices. Utilizing myIDkey apps for iPhone and Android, you can easily manage and edit passwords and encrypt select files to protect with your unique fingerprint.

Built on an industry-leading ARM-based microcontroller, myIDkey secures ID and password information on an ultra-portable key, which features an easy-to-read OLED screen with navigation buttons.

It also features voice search technology for quick and easy hands-free access to critical information.

myIDkey includes an embedded biometric authentication for fingerprint activation, AES-256 bit encryption to protect your data, and multi-layer authentication for added security.

If your myIDkey is lost or stolen, data will automatically be deleted after a set number of failed attempts to gain access. So in short, this might be the coolest gadget you could own and it is worth every penny.
