But as technology advances even this stout performer the Chubb styled key is starting to loose its ground as more multipoint locks are starting to be used. Off course these multipoint locks that are used in composite doors and UPVC doors are using cylinders that use what we know as a Yale type key.
But what does the future hold for the metal type key, still in the shape of the key we see the Evva MCS keys using magnets to work the lock and to this date has not been picked (citation required).

BMW seems to be in the forefront of key technology for cars using rolling code technology. The idea is simple every time you present the key to the car the cars asks for a code which the key gives.

There are technologies out there that already can do that Fermax Bluetooth receiver, obviously using blue tooth can open a door as you walk up to it as one example.
