Default Porting my Fluidic Hyundai - The KeyPort System

I know some of you are going to hate me after you find out that this thread has got nothing to do with my Verna's engine.

However, I'm sure many of you will find this product very interesting.

I was talking to a friend of mine in the US and somehow the topic drifted to this.

Enter The Keyport System. (mykeyport.com)

Its an innovative design that helps reduce clutter in our pocket. It costs about 4k for a fully loaded set and while I know its expensive, the coolness quotient is worth it. Don't flame me for this comment but I'm a sucker for such knick knacks Only gripe is that I wont have the remote. The RFid chip can be installed but not the lock/unlock transmitter. I can get it for all my other keys though, which is exactly what I'm going to do.

While the set up surely will be 'bling bling', what about warranty? And if something goes wrong, to get it repaired, it has to go back to US. And the car? Hyundai will wash its hands off saying 'tampering'. Looks good,sure, but not worth IMO.

See the website.

Yes, it is a replacement for the key. See this Replace Your Keychain w/Technology, Convenience, & Style - Keyport Slide and Blades | Keyport, Inc.. This picture should make it clear.

Its a boy toy!

EDIT: Sachin, you beat me to it!

Well, there is nothing here to go wrong really. Its simplicity itself. The LED module may get damaged if immersed in water though. Other than that there is nothing that can malfunction. Also the keys are not spring loaded. So no springs to go weak or break etc.

Plus ordering extra keys are much cheaper.

All of this is presumptuous of me. Once I get it and if something goes wrong, I'll regret it But I'll still enjoy it.

If I had a penny for all the time I got into trouble cause of a gadget... lol.. I think its an illness really. I remember having to get my dad to school for getting lasers, serpentine spray, air guns, water guns and God knows what else.. He's been to my school more times than any other parent I guess..

Looks like a swiss-knife to me. is the setup strong enough to work as bottle opener. Can't it break?

Well it shouldn't really. I read a few reviews and everyone said its built like a tank. I am not worried cause I'm not ordering the bottle opener. Have no need for one.
