One of the most interesting stories I’ve read all year:
Forbes’ Andy Greenberg reports that the security consultant, who goes by the name “Ray,” used a 3-D printer to cheaply produce plastic versions of the keys to high-security handcuffs manufactured by the English company Chubb and the German company Bonowi. Ray’s plastic keys easily sprung open both firms’ cuffs.
The ability to do real-world nefarious deeds with cyber-space methods is always fascinating to me. 3-D printing will be coming in more and more flavors and applications – it’s a little crazy to think what those will be.
