On the surface this looks like your typical blocky power strip, but under the hood this device is a full fledged hacking tool designed to let white hat hackers (the good-guy hackers) test the security level of a computer network whether wired or wireless.

The Power Pwn has an entire suite of hacking software built in, for testing Wi-Fi, ethernet, and Bluetooth.  You can add an optional 3G/GSM adapter whcih is compatible with SIM cards from AT&T, Vodafone, Oragne and GSM carriers in 160 countries.  The Power Pwn was partially funded by DARPA, which has a vested interest in protecting the governments networks, but with a pre-order price of nearly $1300, this might make the non-government regular person shy away.

Of its many specs it also includes 16GB of internal disk space, has a fully automated NAC/802.1x/RADIUS bypass.  All 8 outlets are fully functional.  It is preloaded with Debian 6, Metasploit, SET, Fast-Track, w3af, Kismet, Aircrack, SSLstrip, nmap, Hydra, dsniff, Scapy, Ettercap, Bluetooth/VoIP/IPv6 tools and more.
