There has been lots of discussion on this list about the Safeplug, which 
didn't garner much enthusiasm from the list members.  I haven't seen 
this project mentioned:


An open-source software and hardware router for Tor, vpn, etc.  Being 
open-source, it eliminates a lot of the concerns expressed about the 
Safeplug.  The downside is it costs US$400.  It's being crowd-funded via 
Indigogo and they are seeking $200,000 to get it going.  I really don't 
know if they will be successful or not.  Too early to tell.

It seems to me that a project similar to DD-WRT but specifically aimed 
at providing Tor would be a _lot_ less expensive.

What I do find encouraging is the number of Tor related projects that 
are springing up in the aftermath of the NSA revelations.
