Secure the contents of your USB drive with a combination lock

One Russian designer decided simply encrypting the data on his USB flash drive wasn't enough, so he added a physical layer of protection: a five-wheel combination lock.

Drafted up as a creation in Auto CAD and presumably cut with lasers, this USB flash drive definitely is fit to be labeled under the steampunk category. Specifics are scarce regarding what material this USB flash drive is made out of (Technabob says it's brass), but we want one!

Why didn't anybody else come up with this sooner? We'd imagine the combination lock would cost extra, but how many kids at school, work, or your local Starbucks can crack a combination lock?
