Keyport Slide – goodbye to the huge dangling key chains
I hate my keys. Loud, heavy, pointy pieces of metal, easy to lose, hard to find among the others, even fragile, and used everywhere. Door keys, gate keys, car and bike keys, locker keys.. they’re everywhere. Wouldn’t you like a way to get rid of them, and of your RFID tags and car remotes? There might just be a chance here…
Dubbed the ‘KeyPort Six-module Slide’, this gadget proclaims to be the ‘World’s First Universal Key Fob’. ‘Universal’ means that it includes a RFID function and a car alarm remote function too. As these two features are ‘currently under development’ it’s still impossible to tell how many RFID codes it will be able to store and how easy or practical it will be to switch between them. Also, we don’t know if one device will be able to store remote commands for more than one car, or if it can also work as a garage remote.
For the normal keys, the only downside is the fact you’ll have to go and make copies of your existing keys to KeyPort compatible blanks that can be fitted inside the shell.
The eye hook is offered as a ‘feature’, but i really think it needs better placement, so you can connect more of them together. There’s just too many of us who have more than 6 keys.
All in all, even without the RFID and remote functionality, the KeyPort is a good solution to cluttered and clinking pockets or bags. You can sign up for a future purchase here, found at Core77.
