World’s most interesting lock. Good luck trying to pick it.

Before you jump and run to Home Depot or look for a link to landing one of these to safe keep all your crap, think twice.  It is owned by a esoteric lock collector, and there is no mass production available.  It seem to be some type of prototype that blew my mind after seeing how it functions.  I really can’t make out the logo and the source speculates it to be American, and it was entered in a German engineering contest of some sort.  It is a serpentine shaft, and the key slides through its frame and slithers into place to pivot the lock into opening.  I would guess that it was a massive fail due to the extremities in producing a functioning model for an attractive price, but by the looks of it, it appears to be a lock picker’s nightmare.  Enjoy the video.
