Hardware Hacking with KeyMe iOS app
An app by https://www.keyme.net/ that will scan a key (picture) that you can then take to Kiosk https://www.keyme.net/kiosk or locksmith that will make a real key based on image on your smartphone.
Interesting, but I see a lot of security and/or hacking issues with this, though it has been possible to make keys from high res pictures for some time now.
Technology like this defeats key access control easily, pretty much forces non physical key (ie a key card) for any real security.
Though most common key cards have many security issues as well.
