I didn't recognize the inscription, so I looked it up. For my fellow heathens, it's from the Book of Matthew:

"Ask, and it shall be given you;
seek, and ye shall find;
knock, and it shall be opened unto you"

Now I've got another thing to do if I somehow fall ass-backwards into more money than I'll be able to spend in a lifetime: build a house full of things like these. The goal would be to make it so a trip to the bathroom would feel as if you're playing Myst. Frustration and all.

And yet again I accidentally reply to someone. I'll go flagellate myself in penance.

Smellvin, you do know that a fifty minute tour through the house vs your blatter isn't going to work /if you have to go/?

Flagellate to the beat of "shave and a haircut".

Fancy steampunk thing with latin bible verse engraved inside... Opens to "shave and a haircut".

Five stars for the guy standing offscreen with a garage door opener, collectively fooling the internet into believing their steampunk wizardry is real

No, apparently it's not a hoax:

One small step closer to turning our house into something from Myst,

Steampunk that actually does something other than look douchey!
Old_Zircon - 2010-08-05
To be fair, you can't see the actual steampunk, he may well be looking very douchey off camera.

Anyhow, I can't give this a full five stars because it runs on Arduino AND they didn't even develop the code.

5 for standing on the shoulders of giants then

"it runs on Arduino AND they didn't even develop the code." = - star?

Show me how your garage door opens and or I'm calling the internet police.

I have to get my keys out, unlock the damn thing, and then manually pull the handle and try and not break a rusty spring. And then I get inside and it's all full of useless crap.

Well, when I see this unique locking mechanism on the side of someone's house, I know what to do.
pastorofmuppets - 2010-08-05
I don't open my door unless they know the password ("walt sent me").
twinkieafternoon - 2010-08-05
This isn't like Myst at all, guys. The solution actually worked the first time he tried it.

Also, he just gave away the password to his home's novelty lock thing on the internet. Not sound thinking.
pastorofmuppets - 2010-08-05
Well, it's his house, so he probably remembered to leave the water on at the rest stop sink 20 miles away, and to set his watch to an even multiple of the number of siding panels on the house.

You can reprogram the lock to accept a new knock rhythm, which means the old one doesn't work anymore.
