Platform wedges can be used for more than fashion and extra height. One Reddit user has used these stylist shoes to essentially hack and steal your information. SexyCyborg designed her shoes and made them using a 3D printer where she could hide devices like a USB key logger, a pen testing device, an ethernet cable, and a lock pick set.
The woman’s arsenal would help her to record every single letter typed by the user such as passwords and highly confidential information. She would also be able to connect from a company’s network from a remote location.
SexyCyborg may know how to hack and hurt any person or corporation, she warns it’s always best to follow the law. She admits to not being too much of techie but she asks questions and learns from tutorials. She may just be a modern day spy in the making.
SexyCyborg was inspired by the TV show Mr. Robot, a series about a vigilante hacker.
She works in web development but she decided to educate herself on the ins and outs of hacking by reading different sites and watching tutorials.
She began to think how would she be able to achieve getting close enough to a company to steal their information.
“Social engineering for one- I’m a natural honeypot. I think there’s a reasonable chance that a guy might invite me back to their office after a few drinks in the neighborhood,” explains SexyCyborg.
She is not relying on her good looks, her purse, and mobile to access any private information.
Like a true spy or high tech criminal, the woman chose to use shoes as the secret compartment to hide all of her tools necessary to get the job done.
She designed and created the Wu Ying Shoes. The name has a lot of meaning.
“Wu Ying” translates to “shadowless” which is a name made famous by a Chinese folk hero, Wong Fei Hung. Hung invented the shadowless kick which distracted opponents with a punch, followed by the kick.
Wong Fei Hung originates from Foshan, China. The birthplace of Bruce Lee and SexyCyborg herself.
SexyCyborg has turned her wedges into the shadowless kick by distracting people with the, “upper body and they don’t see the real danger on my feet.”
