The iTwin Connect is a cute little device that looks like a flash drive with two plugs, but has endless possibilities: the verdant green pastures of Netflix's US library; browsing blocked sites from your work computer, or a secure connection from a dodgy internet café's WiFi.

The way the device works is simple. You plug one dongle into each computer, and then you essentially have a secure VPN between the two with hopefully zero hassle. Anyone who's ever tried to set up a VPN using something like Hamachi or OpenVPN knows that the dark arts of VPNage are not for the faint-hearted; something simple like this will revolutionise the art of browsing Reddit during work hours, as pesky blocked internet will be a thing of the past. It also allows you secure internet browsing while you're hopping between free WiFi hostpots, or grants easy access to you home computer's files while you're on the go.

Of possibly greater interest, part of the £85 package are iTwin VPN servers in the US, Europe and the UK, so you can watch US-only videos from our sunny isles. Although this is already possible with VPN subscription services, they typically cost a few quid a month -- this solution, like all good things in life, is beautifully subscription-free.

Like what you're hearing? Ships worldwide on 22nd Jan for a slightly steep £85 -- but you can pretend it's a productivity device, not just a way to get round your work's porn filters.  [iTwin]
