Keys Cloned from Cellphone Photo

Scientists recently revealed that a new software developed at the Jacobs School of Engineering at the University of California-San Diego is capable of copying photographed keys. Housekeys were used in experimentation that included using low-resolution camera phones to obtain images of the keys. The software then generated the geometrical dimensions of the keys from the photographs, allowing key makers to create exact duplicates.

The project is nicknamed 'SNEAKEY'.



A headline on the website this morning reads "A New World Order" and displays a picture of Barack Obama waving to the enthusiastic crowd. Riding the wave of Obama popularity, Democrats swept most of Tuesday's elections, establishing a powerful majority in Congress as well as taking the Presidency.

Ironically, the phrase "New World Order," uttered most prominently by a Republican, former president, George H. W. Bush, hasn't been quoted as coming from Barack Obama. He has, however, made numerous calls for globalization, the intent of new world order proponents.
