Redditor SexyCyborg has designed 3D printed high-heeled shoes filled with penetration test kit
The article is slightly NSFW, hence user discretion is request
A Chinese hardware hacker who goes by the pen name of ‘SexyCyborg’ has built a penetration testing toolkit built into her high-heeled shoes. She used a 3D printer to get herself a set of hollow high heels, with the purpose of secretly carrying a penetration testing kit around.
SexyCyber made a post on Imgur giving details of her creation. Apparently, the gadget is inspired by the currently running and very popular TV show ‘Mr. Robot’
She explains, “I’ve been watching the TV show “Mr. Robot” and while I know not all of it is accurate some of it is and it got me curious. I’m already pretty comfortable with command line and remote server administration from my web development work, and it turns out a lot of ‘hacking’ tools are just testing tools any sensible IT professional would use- just without a GUI. So I spent this month hitting the books (well web pages) watching lots of videos and learning a bit about information security and penetration testing (I wonder how many idiot jokes that phrase is going to cause…). I still don’t know much, but I know a tiny bit more than I did. Enough to ask people who know more than me the right questions- and enough for a fun project.”
Her entire project is given below :
SexyCyborg has also released the 3D-printer blueprints for hackers who want to clone her idea. If you like her invention, kindly upvote her post on Imgur.
