The 'KeyDuino' is a simple DIY that gives bros everywhere a cooler way to unlock their car. The device makes use of Near Field Communication (NFC) in order to help drivers slide in and out of their vehicle with nothing more than a quick fist bump.

The KeyDuino was designed by Pierre Charlier, who is a French student and an active contributor to 'HackADay.io.' Charlier came up with the KeyDunio as a DIY solution for getting in and out of the car quickly. The simple device uses an NFC-enabled ring to communicate with the vehicle's dashboard unlock controls and an NFC scanner on the window. When the driver's ring bumps the scanner, this information is relayed to the locking mechanism and the car will automatically unlock.

The DIY tool demonstrates how NFC technology can be used to simplify everyday tasks in a clever and amusing way.
