...The technology could allow you to open a door without a key or have tech gadgets like smartphones and tablets unlock the second that you walk into a room. It sounds like something out of a science fiction movie, but experts say it is the wave of the future.

One press of a button later and they've exactly replicated the signal they've just captured, and can unlock and re-mobilise your pride and joy)

Ah well, that's me further up the hit list I guess?
