We engineers absolutely love tinkering with almost everything! We are curious about how things work, why they work that way, and what can be done to improve them. Here’s a topic that might spike your interest—Lock picking
The science of Lock picking has been present since locks have been invented. It is used by many as a hobby and a practical skill worldwide. Although the act is usually related to criminals, this skill has its positive sides as well, like saving your life if kidnapped, getting into your house if you forgot your keys for some reason, as well as saving money in locksmithing costs if you lost your keys.
There are practice locks which are transparent, that can be found for sale online but you can use any padlock for practice. Make sure you use a padlock that isn’t being currently used, since practicing on it may damage the lock of it is done incorrectly. Buy a new one to practice on.
