New kiosks help when you're locked out of your house

Being locked out of your car or home may soon be a little easier to deal with.

Startup company Keyme has created a kiosk that not only duplicates keys on demand, but lets you store the key pattern digitally and associate it with your fingerprint.

You put your key in a keyhole where it's analyzed and securely stored for later use.

So later on if unfortunately you need it, all you would do is return to the kiosk, place your thumb in a scanner, and pay the $20 for a fresh key.

So far the kiosks are only available in New York City, but company officials are hoping to expand across the country.
