    This is a short video of Youtuber Caliixxs demonstrating the door sensor he built using an Arduino, infrared sensor, and Adafruit Music Maker Shield to play the various bass riffs from Seinfeld whenever the door is opened. I have a mechanical door sensor. And that sensor is a... / Continue →

    Look at this girl. She looks crazy, right? Like, why the hell are you turning the water on, you're going to soak you're going to soak your pants and it's obviously cold out. The thing is, she's not turning the water on, she's opening the secret rear entrance to the house. W... / Continue →

    I hate public restrooms. Most guys in stalls don't even bother trying to muffle their farts EVEN WHEN THEY KNOW THEY'RE NOT ALONE. Plus they smell. Plus there's piss all over the floor. Plus dudes get all freaked out if you try to make eye contact and small-talk at a urinal ... / Continue →

    Personally, I'm cool with a regular door provided the lock still works and the knob can hold a sock. But for some people that just isn't enough. Enter the 'Air-Powered Star Trek Door', a door that guarantees you'll never need to put a sock on the non-existent knob. Just kidd... / Continue →

    I typically try to avoid peepin' at knobs but I have been known to glance over a urinal divider if I hear an unusually powerful stream. Curiosity aside, this is a doorknob that allows you to see what's on the other side. Which, SPOILER!: your brother masturbating. Hideyuki N... / Continue →

    Earthquakes: they're scary. Almost as scary as tornadoes. Did you know in the event of an earthquake you're supposed to stand in a doorway? I didn't. I thought you were supposed to stop drop and roll. OMG --I think my teacher was trying to kill me. Eff you Miss Gardner! ... / Continue →

    Find yourself perpetually drunk? You might have a drinking problem. Kidding, I'm sure you're fine. But if you ever have trouble getting your key in the door (typically I'd use that as a metaphor for sex-bangin', but not in this case) then you may wanna check this key slut ou... / Continue →

    The Hand-le is a door handle created by Amsterdam designer Naomi Thellier de Poncheville. It reminds me of the dog leash hand and is a slap in the incredibly handsome faces of lefties like myself. But that's not what's important. What's important is that my dad sent me this ... / Continue →

    Holy shit, it's a PVC pipe bomb! No, not really. It's the Knock Lock, a homebrew door lock that will only release the deadbolt if you perform the secret knock. Cooooool -- I want one for my clubhouse! A microphone (okay, really a speaker) presses against the door and listen... / Continue →

    This is a video of an alleged Pakistani engineering student failing to use an automatic door correctly (read: with his face). You just have to see it to believe it. God only knows how he treats escalators. Engineering Student Takes On Electrical Door, Loses [gizmodo]... / Continue →

    Sometimes it's the simplest things that are best. Like a bacon sandwich on a crisp morning or tricking a dinosaur into thinking another meteor is coming so you can bed it that night. And then there's this keyring. Which is both key AND keyring. What will they think of next?... / Continue →

    Some guy went and stuffed a wireless doorbell into an old NES controller. That is all. There's a video of it in action after the jump. SPOILER ALERT: it goes ding-dong. Hit it for the video. MASH THE BUTTON. DO IT. YOU MASH IT GOOD!... / Continue →

    A would-be thief tried to use his head as a battering ram to bust open the back door of a home in St Petersburg, Florida. He failed miserably. But I loved how he got down like a bull before charging the door, I thought that was a nice touch. Just chalk it up as a learning ex... / Continue →

    This is a little photo gallery of flickr user NickIsConfused's new pet, ATilla the AT-AT. As you can see, it's adjusting to it's new home quite nicely. Awwwwwh. You know, this really makes me want to bring home a little bundle of joy. Yeah, a brown paper one from the liquor... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy opening and closing a cabinet door so the whole world can hear how it sounds like Chewbacca. Also, 'holy shit, this is amazing!' should never be used to describe a cabinet door. "Say, are you that guy that made the Chewbacca squeaking door video?" "I... / Continue →

    I've seen it all now. A $13 mouse pad that looks like a welcome mat. Jesus, what will they think of next? And could it possibly be this freaking stupid? UPDATE: Jesus said their next pad is gonna look like a little mouse cage. Aaaaaand I'm out. *BANG* Product Page Tha... / Continue →

    The Enterbell is just that, an Enter key doorbell. Pretty straightforward. No ess curves required to understand this one. Unfortunately, it's currently only a concept created by Li Jianye. Wait a minute -- a concept? How hard is it to glue an Enter key to a regular freakin... / Continue →

    The Brightdoor is green when unlocked, red when locked. Pretty simple, but it's making that girl in the picture glow like the devil. Apparently Lervik Design (the company responsible) first made just handles that lit up. But after realizing you could waste a lot more energy if... / Continue →

    Is escaping your home in case of an emergency too easy? Need more of a challenge escaping during a fire? How about adding the Defendius Door Chain from Art Lebedev (maker of the Optimus Maximus). As you can see it's a maze. A maze of death. By fire. No word on price or if... / Continue →

    The Revolution Door from Fluxlab is a revolving door that would create energy via generator. Apparently the idea for such a device is old, and the implementation is difficult because weaklings already have enough trouble with revolving doors due to the seal created and their l... / Continue →
