InventGeek - Quick Vibrating Lockpick
The blog where I stumbled across this had a comment to the effect that "it's okay for cheap padlocks, but wouldn't have much success with something like a door"...
Quick Vibrating Lockpick
Often when it comes to true invention and discovery, crossing the line of ethics of the day leads to great discoveries. There seems to be several areas of humanity that create social boundaries preventing discoveries of all types. Lets all take a moment to reflect on the nature of humanity.. Ok that was enough of that! Supposed ethical boundaries have often stymied the progression of insight both to our surroundings, but also into our self's. It is in one of these perceived dark recesses of humanity that I have felt like delving into with this project. Any type of project that effects perception of security and stability of life is never popular. While lock picking is nothing new, for those who know nothing about it, it often shocks and scares people with its ease and sharp reality.
I beg to differ. As someone who has been capable of picking locks for the past 20 years, I am downright positive that this tool would be even more effective and quicker on the typical doorknob or deadbolt. The technology is the same. I have even used a standard pick to open car doors to retrieve keys - the pin-and-tumbler design is everywhere.
If Magnum P.I. had had one of these, the Ferrari would have been much easier to acquire.
