Guy Makes Device Which Can Open Combination Locks in a Matter of Seconds




/ 4 years ago

Not really what you were looking to hear if you have a locker at work or school that relies on combination locks to keep people from snooping through your personal belongings, huh? Well, someone was bound to do something like this sooner or later and it’s not like combination locks were the best security option on the planet anyway.

This new high-tech process looks to follow the manual process used by experienced crackers, but drastically reducing the process with the help of computerized algorithms. The device is made out of a stepper motor, a servo motor, a 3D printed harness and an Adruino to help with the AI/computerized side of things.

But now to the real question… how useful is the process? Well, not that useful. Experienced crackers can open these type of locks in a matter of seconds too (not as fast as a robot, but pretty fast nonetheless). So that’s why combination locks are made to keep out nosy people from snooping through your personal stuff and not keep your family values safe.

Still, this can be useful when you really have no experience and desire to learn how to crack these things and want to prank your friends. You can watch the video below to see how it is made and tested.
