NEC and Takara Take the USB Self Destruction Button to the Next Level

The rocket launch room style USB self destruction button made big waves early 2005. Now NEC together with Takara offer notebooks with these type of military style accessories.

The NEC Lavie notebooks come bundled with a emergency button to power on and off the notebook and a USB gadget dubbed glitter panel. The glitter panel has a red LED dot matrix display that can display vital stats of the notebook or scrolling messages.
