Since I am into this kind of business I have heard about various 3D printing innovations such as 3D printed blood vessel, 3D Burrito printer and so on. But I am greatly surprised and shocked, altogether, to know about a 3D printer which helped a German security consultant pick locks in high-end security handcuffs.
Ray, in a NY based meeting of Hackers On Planet Earth (HOPE) conference, has demonstrated an unmatched 3D security key by opening handcuffs. It is built by the English and German manufacturer, Chubb and Bonowi, respectively. Both are popular to distribute their keys only to authorized buyers, but not this time.
But Ray, being a hacker, picked up the Chubb key via an unknown source. The man has made aware the police and other security officers about his plan to upload the CAD models online on a 3D printing Web based platform called Thingiverse. His intentions are clear thanks to heaven, as he just wants the loopholes in the handcuffs removed before any criminal gets away by manipulating those vulnerabilities.
