Default Are there any hosts like this?

I'd like to find a good host, with the following:

1) Key back button, and side thumb button.

2) Ability to input code to allow powering (yeah, OCD safe), with #2, I guess #1 isn't required.

Because of the obvious danger of lasers, I want to make one that is absolutely foolproof (within reason), with regards to kids. What is the first thing kids do, when they pick up a flashlight? They shine it in their or someone else's eyes.

Yes, yes, I know you don't leave them laying around. But anyone who says they keep them under lock and key at all times, is probably lying. I do, but when I go take a pee, I don't lock it up. I do a quick disassembly but rarely lock mine up, if I run to the fridge or go take a dump. Only when I'm done for the day, or a long period, does it go into the safe. I don't have kids in the house but many people do.

A safe switch seems very reasonable. But do any currently exist, on hosts that we can buy? I haven't seen any.

If not, I might have to design one. I've even been thinking of putting an RFID on one so that it won't turn on, unless the RFID chip is near.

Default Re: Are there any hosts like this?

The cheap ones are not very much good, I would take the battery out and/or buy a quality locking switch.

Ehgemus can make a host for you with this kind of switch.

This is an older list, well a coupe months ago, so some are not active.

Sincerely investigate any of these three short quotes as new concepts and you've taken your first step into a larger world:

"I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness..." - Max Planck. "Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real" - Neils Bohr. "What we call physical things and events do not exist independently of subjective experience..." - Deepak Chopra.

Each of these three rabbit holes go deep, ending up in the same place.

Useless troll fighting.
