Practice Locks for Boing Boing’s Weekend of Wonder

Unknown

Have you heard about Boing Boing’s Weekend of Wonder? It’s a three-day festival coming this September 18-20, 2015 at the Mission Inn in Riverside, California, where you will “learn about exciting new DIY technologies, make cool stuff, immerse yourself in an alternate reality adventure, hang out with nerd superstars*, and be surprised by cool special events you’ll never forget.”

I’ll be one of the event’s special guests, there to present nifty stuff and teach interesting skills. I’m currently planning a few workshops on locks — how they work, how to open them in unconventional ways, and how to make your own associated tools.

These are just a few example locks I’ll be bringing to help people learn and practice their new skills. These represent a variety of common wafer locks, pin tumbler locks, warded locks, and combination locks that you may encounter in the course of daily life/secret operations/ninja-ing around.

Hope to see you there!

*My first time being called a “nerd superstar”. And I kinda like it.
