I wish I had this in college

Below is an article from a website I feed into my google reader. Click the link and check out the video. It would be a complete waste of time to actually put this on my door, but it would still be pretty slick.

DIY Key-Fob Front Door Opener [DIY]: "

Ever wished you could use the same technology that remotely unlocks your car with your front door? One clever college student did, and this DIY key-fob remote door opener accomplishes just that.

We're talking about some pretty heavy hardware hacking here, so this guide isn't for the faint of heart, but it is a fun idea. After all, who wouldn't want to perform some wireless-remote front-door unlocking? The results, as you can see in the video, aren't bad (if he weren't doing it to a dorm room, the author says he could have integrated the system a bit more seamlessly with the door and lock), but if you're really looking to impress, the previously mentioned guide to setting up RFID access to your front door won't disappoint.
