Lockitron: Forget Your Keys

Even if you’ve never locked yourself out of your house, forgotten your keys or had to do some fancy maneuvering to get your keys to a house sitter on your way to the airport the Lockitron is something you won’t be able to stop yourself from wanting.

The Lockitron is a digital Bluetooth enabled lock that attaches to your front door’s deadbolt, and while that sounds mundane it’s applications are frickin’ awesome. By using your cell phone you can effortlessly walk through your locked door as long as you have your phone with you. You can also grant your friends access to your home from anywhere in the world, which is great news for your cat.

Finally, thanks to an embedded Arduino controller you can also do weird crap like open your door with a banana piano. Confused? Good we’d be concerned if you weren’t! checkout the video below to see just what we’re talking about as well as the other cool things the Lockitron can do, then head over to lockitron.com to pre-order the crowdsourced deadbolt!
