The world needs more entropy!
The ChaosKey is a fully libre & open design, hardware random number generator for use with computers that have an available USB port.
The design provides bits at the maximum rate supported by full-speed USB, which is approximately 1 megabyte per second.
For Linux systems running kernel version 4.1 or newer, operation is as simple as plugging in the device, as a suitable driver for feeding random bits into the kernel entropy pool is already present in the kernel, and ChaosKey will automatically be detected and bound to this driver.

bits from the noise source are available here:
