    just in case you care, you just showed your house key to the world. you might want to obscure that next time. but it's a great project!

    yeah, what he said... some guy invented a key that's also a keyring (genius!) and then posted the prototype online... then he had to change his locks, because he posted his house key on his international blog.

    Any half-decent key-maker can duplicate a key from a photo or scan. Just to let you know =)
