Hacker Opens High Security Handcuffs With 3D-Printed And Laser-Cut Keys
Thought this was pretty cool. I guess they are going to have to rethink things...


"The security of high-end handcuffs depends on a detainee not having access to certain small, precisely-shaped objects. In the age of easy 3D printing and other DIY innovations, that assumption may no longer apply.

In a workshop Friday at the Hackers On Planet Earth conference in New York, a German hacker and security consultant who goes by the name “Ray” demonstrated a looming problem for handcuff makers hoping to restrict the distribution of the keys that open their cuffs: With plastic copies he cheaply produced with a laser-cutter and a 3D printer, he was able to open handcuffs built by the German firm Bonowi and the English manufacturer Chubb, both of which attempt to control the distribution of their keys to keep them exclusively in the hands of authorized buyers such as law enforcement."

No one interested... Oh well, I think this will forever change the locksmith's purpose. What do you think GLP?

I mean, really. What if you can just 3-d print your own house, car keys etc? Does it not make you all a little worried? Hmmm.....

Literally 3D print your own reality.

 Quoting: Kinect


I saw a show about a year ago that showcased the 3D printers. It's pretty amazing. You can create real objects that are pretty much replicas, although the material is obviously has limitations.

One of the areas this is being looked at is in space--where they might need anything but are limited in space of what ca n be brought up. If they have an emergency and need a tool or something they can just print it.

When this, and it WILL, rolls into consumer market, it will have major impact, like computers and the internet.

Really, I mean how far in scale can this go? What if there are massive 3-d printers like this?

Like: "I feel like making a fucking rocket/bomb that will level a small city, with the plans I got off of the internet."

That's so true man. Thanks for the post! I don't think most people realize the shit you can make with this technology...

"All your keys belong to us." To everyone... All one needs is a model number to your house, car, work. Easily accessible via an internet file. Printed in plexiglass. Easy-peasy...

What you say GLP? Do you like this idea? Hmmm....
