Brute Forcing Combination Locks
This computerized servomotor opens combination locks by brute forcing all the combinations. This isn't particular surprising, but it is nice to see some actually build one.
What's more interesting is the link describing how to open a common Master brand lock in about 10 minutes. The design makes those 403 possible combinations collapse to 121. It's a physical metaphor for bad cryptography.
