Anonabox - a tiny and low cost open source Tor router (updated)

The idea of a ‘secure’ router that ensures all communications from a connected device are encrypted as they pass between it and the internet is not new.

This is effectively what any router that is configured to run VPN does (we have instructions for doing this yourself in DD-WRT, or you can buy pre-flashed and configured routers from many VPN providers).

We have also seen products before that route all connections through Tor, such as the Onion Pi (a Raspberry Pi pre-configured to use Tor), the PogoPlug SafePlug (similar to the Anonabox, but twice the size and not open source), as well as DIY flash your own router with Tor projects, such as the TorRouter and PORTAL (both of which ultimately aim to offer unified software/hardware solutions).
