    They've already made enough free software. Such things don't come out of nowhere (needs money).

    Found some pricing...

    Kingston Digital has now introduced the DataTraveler 6000, a new, highly-secure flash drive which offers Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 Level 3-grade data protection and 256-bit AES hardware-based encryption using an XTS block cipher mode.

    Targeting enterprises and government agencies, the DT6000 has a tamper-proof and water-proof titanium-coated stainless steel casing, a USB 2.0 interface, offers read/write speeds of up to 11/5 MB/s, and comes with a five-year warranty.

    The DataTraveler 6000 line includes 2GB, 4GB, 8GB and 16GB drives which cost $100, $116, $147 and $208, respectively.​

    To reach that 140-2/Level 3 , this drive has got to be darn near indestructible (for physical security). I love Kingston Secure drives - I have several after 2 out of 3 of my IronKey drives went bad. Never again, IronKey. Kingston's line of secure USB flash drives (including this new digital fortress) are excellent.

    The technology for this drive is from Spyrus....check out this interesting OS on a very secure stick:

    On Edit: Wow! Watch this video about the Spyrus drive with Windows
