    Bwahahaha… yes, I saw this Kickstarter yesterday (disclosure: I know the author of the article via Twitter). Nice enumeration of the so, so many things wrong with this.

    It really is kinda priceless that they promise to reduce latency in the same piece as they promise to hide your IP (which they would have to achieve by routing your packets less directly).

    And they keep describing this as if it’s a device, alone. Pro tip for next time: Onion routing requires servers. Lots of servers. Run by different people. With auditing and stuff to identify bad actors. Of course, other than the reference to “TOR” they don’t actually say that this is onion routing, but that’s the extant technology that would do this, and they also don’t describe anything that would explain how their claims are possible, so…
