Electric lock pick

Electric lock pick
How I missed this when I did my round up of spy gadgets I don’t know. It appears that the subtle art of lock picking has not escaped the inexorable march of technology.

Having said that this looks like a pretty brute force approach to the problem of gaining entry without a key although it’s not as brute force as, say, a sledgehammer so perhaps it has merit. Apparently jamming one of the swappable picks into a lock and pressing the button will agitate the lock cylinders several times a second and with practice you should be able to get into many places you shouldn’t.

Is this even legal? They’re selling them so I guess they must be… If you get caught it’s nothing to do with me!

I found this one on Lockpickshop.com

Ah, the wonders I could do with that. :D Not that I would do anything illegal… :P *wanders off*

Make your own of these for about $9 :-)
