I have one of these:

It is a miniature Linux machine that is powered via USB with a fingerprint scanner which requires that you scan your finger in order to log in, plus knowing your login and password.

It uses your computer's network connection, monitor, keyboard and mouse as periferals so even if you had a virus on your computer, it would have to sftp into your BlackDog to access any files.

Would this be a safe way of getting and protecting your wallet.dat file?

Yeah right... $25 each if they can make over a million units at a time.

Also it is going to be a linux nerd nightmare, it wont work for anyone who doesn't know how to work through a 25 package dependancy hell

All the open source linux projects sound so great, until you actually try to use one. Then you realize it doesnt matter how good a coder you are... It is incredibly difficult to figure out 50,000 lines of someone ELSE's code.

See Openmoko for instance. I bought one of those, and never figured out how to make it do anything.
