eLock sounds wonderful. If 128 bits key is not enough to keep hacker away, 256 bits or more can be used. If you want to make 1 more key, simply put a USB drive into the lock and ask the lock to make a key for you, saving the hassle to go to hardware store to have your key made. What a wonderful idea!


The challenges are

1) What if there is a power outaged?

2) If the device is connected to the cloud, what if Internet goes out?

3) There is a life time of any flash memory, what if the flash memory goes bad?

4) Some kind eletrostatic to burn some main components in the lock?

5) Water damage?

6) What if someone hacks the lock?

I don't have much doubt that eLock will become the best substitute to the traditional doorlock. Question is how soon we are getting through all the roadblocks.

I wonder if the folks over at MasterLock are starting to worry.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
