I've never seen one of those before. I wonder 1) if they work (or how well the keys they make can match the locks they're supposed to match) and 2) if they put the original key at risk somehow.


I was tempted to copy a key just to try it out.

I first saw a machine like this about a year ago in a Home Depot (and later in a Walmart) out here in SoCal, fwiw. These ones will render your copy using the flashy colored or patterned stock of your choosing. I've never gotten close enough to see what method they use to "read" the original.
