Definitively anelok looks from far better. Also your communication with us (normal people with love for open source hard/soft) is incredible. The fingerprint and voice recognition are like "bells and whistles" to promote the product, but we all know that fingerprint reading is not secure.

By the way, I found a company that makes a somewhat similar
device:

http://myidkey.com/

At 80.0 x 35.6 x 22.1 mm (63 ccm), it's a little bulkier than Anelok
with currently about 84.5 x 30.0 x 10.4 mm (26.4 ccm). Pretty design,
though.

Other differences include that they use voice recognition (nice) and
a fingerprint scanner (dubious), that they have a rechargeable
battery (good luck with that :-), and that they have lots of nice
wireless options, for which I envy them.

They seem to rely on having a PC around for password/account
management and even a cloud service (optional, probably to fool the
gullible). And of course there doesn't seem to be anything open
about their hard- or software.

They did a nice kickstarter campaign

but now the whiners are up in arms because there are some
delays
