While we don’t condone lock-breaking or any other malicious activity, we like to share creative maker projects when we see them.
In this case, check out C-C-C-Combo Breaker, a motorized, battery powered, 3D printed, Arduino based device that can crack any Master combination lock in less than 30 seconds.
Designed by Samy Kamkar – he’s got quite an interesting background, including inadvertently crashing MySpace back in the day – the C-C-C-Combo Breaker includes the following hardware:
- Arduino Nano
- Allegro A3967 / EasyDriver Stepper Driver (or Allegro A4988)
- Stepper Motor (or Double Shaft Stepper Motor)
- HKT22 Optical Rotary Encoder
- Analog Feedback Servo
- L7805 Voltage Regulators
- 500mAh 3S Lipo Battery
- Lipo Charger
- Arctic Alumina Thermal Adhesive
- Digital Calipers
- Breadboard and Wires
