Cube series are really complicated movie series.

At the end of the Hypercube, Kate gives a device some serious guys (some military guys maybe). This device was taken from Alex Trusks' neck.

What is the purpose of this device?

It was some sort of storage device with confidential information on it. I don't remember many other details though as to why she was looking for it or who had it initially.

Hi DForck42, do you have any evidence to support your theory? –  Soner Gönül Oct 3 '13 at 6:47

The only information in the original version of the film is the last line spoken by an unknown African American in a suit, who presumably works for Izon or the military:

We'll take that to Darcy and see if anything recorded on it

The fact he said "recorded on it" implies it's some kind of sensor device, such as a camera, microphone or other more high-tech information gathering system rather than a storage device, as usually you'd say "saved on it" or "stored on it" in that case.

There's more information given in the alternate ending which I can't seem to find, though Wikipedia says:

The longer alternate ending included in the special features on the DVD reveals the "owners" to be the government; in the shorter version it is unclear who they are, but it is assumed they are Izon. Kate is executed in both versions, but she is praised for being the first operative to make it out alive. In the alternate ending it is revealed to Kate that she was in the Hypercube for just six minutes and fifty-nine seconds. It was an experiment used for quantum teleportation.

The fact that this was an experiment would seem to back up the idea that it was a sensor as the scientists working on the project would need a way to get data back from the experiment and there was no other machinery shown in the "real world" which could be monitoring what happened inside:

Outside the cube
