Duplicating Keys from Pictures

It it now possible to take a picture of a set of keys laying on a restaurant table from many feet away and use key duplication software to help determine the "bitting code" to make a similar set of keys. Scientists at the University of California - San Diego have developed a software program that can perform key duplication from photographs. The advancement in digital imaging, optics, and computer programming have made this possible. The computer program is called "Sneakey" . . . . of course. Read more about this in "A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Locksmiths", Science Daily, October 31, 2008.
