Naomi Wu, better know to the Maker community as “SexyCyborg,” has come up with an interesting hacking tool: a tiny Linux-based computer hidden in a rather large makeup compact.
The device runs Kali Linux on a Raspberry Pi 3, and is meant to act as a concealable tool for penetration testing using an RTL3070 Wi-Fi adapter. The case itself is 3D-printed, and can actually hold cosmetics if necessary while the hacking goes on in the electronics hidden beneath its keyboard/eyeshadow tray.
The display doubles as a smart mirror in portrait orientation, with optional touchscreen capabilities. Pi Palette is also equipped with a 5000mAh battery, which can be wirelessly charged via an induction cradle.
Though a functional computer, SexyCyborg states that it’s “not a serious infosec tool,” so it seems that it lies somewhere in the realm between extremely detailed cyberpunk “prop” and useful gadget. If nothing else, it appears that something like this would make a great old-school gaming emulator!
