Okay, I don’t know if you are confused about this headline, but just to let you know, I was slightly confused when I heard about this new invention.
I will briefly try to explain how the Matrix Lock System works. You know how when you lose your keys, and you have to use your backup keys? With the worst case scenario, you can’t find a spare key and you end up having to change the lock. However, with the Matrix Lock System, you actually have a full set of backup keys, each one different from the other. So, if you lose one key, you just take from the next key in the “cycle”.
The lock has some sort of tiny metal discs that change the pin and tumbler mechanisms inside. This means that when you use the new key, it will change the lock, and now your old key will not work anymore!
So, if someone steals your keys, you can just use your new key to change the lock, and keep the key-thief out of your space.
I couldn’t figure out how to embed this video if you want to see what happens exactly, but you can click on it here to see it for yourself.
I don’t know about you, but if I hear the words “Matrix” with the word “key”, I can’t help but think of that Keymaker guy in The Matrix Reloaded.
