INVENTOR creates an automatic door
lock which stops anyone entering your
room when you start watching X-rated
content.
Web users who are worried about being
caught looking at porn now have the
ultimate answer.
An inventor has created a automatic door
lock which instantly stops anyone
accessing a room when an incognito
browser window is opened.
Mike, CEO of the Useless Duck Company,
says he created the lock so your wife
won’t catch you shopping online – but
we’ve got a feeling most blokes will
probably use it for other online habits.
The gadget works via an Arduino-powered
door bolt that locks itself whenever you
start browsing privately in Google
Chrome.
As you’ll see from the homemade video,
the current version of the lock isn’t
something you’d probably want to screw
to your wall but this is an early concept.
Wi-Fi powered locks are already on sale
and our homes are getting a lot smarter
with thermostats, lightbulbs and even
fridges now connected to the web.
Apple’s next iOS 10 operating system
even includes a new Home app.
This will connect all your smart gadgets
in one place so you can turn on lights,
unlock doors and even raise your window
blinds — all at once.
Samsung also unveiled its new
SmartThings concept last year which is
aimed at making your home fully internet
connected.
SmartThings includes a host of sensors
and plugs that do everything from keeping
your home safe to switching on
appliances remotely.
And users can access the whole system
and recieve full updates from their
phones.
