Arduino Based Gun Safe Cracking Robot

Your friend pulls up with that erector set contraption and says “If I can crack your safe code in under 20 minutes, can I have a gun?”  What do you say?

I too noticed that ~3 number buffer zone on the combo numbers.. you really don’t have to be exact at all you just turn it near the numbers and good enough.  I see what that’s not ideal after watching this video.  I’m assuming the extremely high end safes have their own sets of problems, but I imagine that the combo number buffer zones aren’t one of them.

Wired also wrote an article which basically says the same thing as the video if you’re interested.   Every time I see how many articles I have left to read for free every month I panic.
