Etsy engineer Samantha Goldstein made a small wooden earring to hold her YubiKey 4 Nano, a tiny USB two-factor authentication device. From Motherboard: She laser cut wood and acrylic for the base, and then used sterling silver for the posts. The key slides into the base portion for safe keeping. Goldstein plans to put up a small batch for sale later this week on her Etsy store. “Between my work badge and my phone (and sometimes my computer) I’m lugging around a lot of accessories all the time,” Goldstein told me in a Twitter direct message. “I wanted a way to carry around a Yubikey but not burden myself with one more thing to carry in my hands.” Working late in the labs on these yubikey earrings! eeee! pic.twitter.com/fDto5kSDwZ— *:・゚✧ Samantha ✧・゚:* (@samantha_gold) December 5, 2017
