after the success of its e-paper FES watch, sony has once again turned to crowd-funding for it’s latest high-tech device, the ‘qrio smart lock’. it’s what you’d except from a smart lock; the internet-connected unit enables control of door locks via smartphones. unlike the august smart lock designed by yves behar, the product from the company’s world innovation lab allows users to share encrypted keys via their mobile phones – messaging them through facebook or whatsapp for instance, giving friends and family access to the front door by using the compatible application. the ‘qrio’ has already met its funding goals, and is currently still available here.
