minuteKEY are the makers of the world’s first self-service machine for duplicating keys. Its founders spent years developing the technology to create a service that is accurate, quick and easy to use. The company was established with funding from prominent angel and venture capital investors, and it has machines located in high-traffic locations including some of America’s largest retailers.

The minuteKEY machine combines innovations in robotics, electronics and software engineering, and this patented technology removes nearly any chance for human error. It is a revolution in the key duplication market, providing consumers and businesses with a fast and convenient way to duplicate home and office keys.

The 100% automated machine takes just one minute and there are three easy steps to follow to receive your copy. First, select a key style using the touch-screen, then insert the key you want copied into the front of the machine, and after a minute you can take your copy home. The minuteKEY machine offers both standard brass and decorative designer keys, and you can also choose a key chain to go with it. Watch the short demonstration video below to see the machine in action:
