KeyMe Lets You Retrieve Lost Keys, Digitally

So you’ve lost your key, now what? If you don’t have a spare one (or lost all your spare keys as well!), then it’s time to change locks, which is a huge waste of time and money. But here’s something you might want to consider before the inevitable happens: save a duplicate of your key in the cloud.

The cool thing is that the kiosk gives you choices on the types of keys that you want to have made.

Some of the options include decorative keys and combination keys that have embedded bottle openers on them. It only accepts home and office keys and not car keys, though, which is a bummer. If you’re worried about key security, KeyMe says it doesn’t store any information on your lock’s location, and requires a fingerprint and credit card for authentication.

The KeyMe kiosks were made in partnership with Benchmark Electronics and they’re set up in several 7-Eleven stores in New York City for now. Storing key patterns is free, while cutting a new key from the pattern will cost $19.99 (USD).
