Senior engineering students in the Security Engineering Lab and Project Realization course at the School of Engineering at the University of Pittsburgh had a project to develop a security medallion to protect portable electronic devices. There were two teams: one dealt with mechanical issues, and one with the software and hardware. This project involved the use of Kensington cable locks to protect laptops from theft.
A patent was issued to Marc Tobias for the Medallion and others are currently in process.
