One nice thing about this, is that unless you want to grind through 
every single layer, it's real difficult to get open.. Apparently, if you 
attempt to open it, the silicon will rip apart. Though I haven't tried 
yet.. It's probably possible to grind through as I say, but it'd be a 
pain.. Tbh, I'd like to see one designed which has a 'self destruct' 
mechanism.. nothing fancy like james bond heh, but something which just 
detected the number of times the password has been queried, and then 
serged the flash in the event of getting it wrong ten times, WITHOUT the 
need of USB power.. Tbh, I still think the best method is to remember 
the epic 64 character long password in your head and have aes4096, but 
hey, who am I to judge :D
