Design Shift says it has created the the first physically secure PC -- the ORWL -- utilizing an encrypted key and a password that the user must have in order to access the computer.

Each PC comes with a unique encrypted key necessary to unlock the computer, and there are never any duplicates of the key manufactured.

ORWL is marketed as a “new category of desktop computer.” The PC can only be utilized by a user within a certain physical range. Once the user steps out of that range, the device locks. If ORWL is tampered with, it will immediately erase all of its data.

It can detect any tampering through its “active mesh,” which checks the integrating of the track of the PC.

ORWL uses many of the secure technologies used in banking, but it’s built for anyone working in health care, finance, retail or accounting. The PC runs Windows and Linux and comes with two USB ports and an HDMI port.
