This Exploding Computer Chip Keeps Important Information Safe

This exploding computer chip maintains the security of the contents inside by giving the user control over its destruction. Vital information requires extra security in case that it could leak out -- and with this technology you can all but guarantee leak prevention.

'Xerox's PARC' developed a chip that can be self-destructed on command if it falls into the wrong hands. Whether it's a matter of the government protecting sensitive information or a movie studio protecting a script -- this chip protects vital information by rendering the chip unusable after it has been shattered.

The company uses a special Gorilla Glass that was modified to shatter when it comes under stress -- leaving nothing and protecting the content that needed security.
