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.

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.

You can not put freedom in a bag.
It is in fact an abstract concept.
Yet it is the single most valuable thing anyone has ever had.

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.
