The Power Pwn, at first glance, might look like a pretty cool looking power strip, but underneath the hood, you will notice that it offers far more than meets the eye. In fact, the Power Pwn will ship with a Debian 6 version of Linux that sports some pretty neat hacking tools which are a snap to use, and not only that, is also extremely difficult to detect. It is said to be able to get around low-level NAC/802.1x/RADIUS network authentication without any assistance, and is also more than capable of moving into stealth mode while ensuring that there is an encrypted link going on to provide white hat hackers a real challenging case on their hands. The 3G link that allows the Power Pwn to remain connected to the Internet will allow one to perform bash command-line instructions via SMSes, while sending feedback in the same way to boot. The Power Pwn will cost you $1,295 a pop, where it seems to boast plenty of unlimited power in the right hands.
