Lock computer with SD-Card

Laplock, Lock my computer with a SD-Card!

Laplock does not only save your laptop, but will also save your files. The Idea: A special SD-Card in your box and anything will run just normal to work with. Pull out the card (someone is knocking at the door) and the box is locked, so there is no way to access it anymore. Furthermore the laptop will not start if the card is not inside. Quite important, if the laptop "gets lost" for some reason.
