A new tech startup called KeyMe plans to put those in the key profession out of business with its quick locksmith kiosk. The KeyMe kiosk is a booth that allows you to store and create new copies of your keys. Using KeyMe, you can get your key digitally scanned and stored. If you ever lose your key, all you have to do is visit a KeyMe booth and get a new one made.

In order to keep your key data safe, the machine assigns you an account based on your fingerprint. As a result, all you have to do is walk up to a kiosk and swipe your finger to get a new key copy.

The automated locksmith service is currently only available in New York City. If you're in the vicinity, you can visit a 7-Eleven to check the robotic locksmith out. Stats for Key-Replicating Kiosks Trending: Older & Average
