Vintage Smart Lock

Believe it or not, this is a 300-year-old smart lock, called the "Detector Lock," and not just a decorative piece. Created by British locksmith John Wilkes during the 1680s, a small button by the man's leg reveals a keyhole when pushed, while a door bolt is released when cocking his hat, and when combined with the turn of the knob, it's quickly unlocked. A pointer indicates the number of times the lock as been opened so you'll know if there have been any break-ins. For those who can't view the video, continue reading for detailed images showing just how the lock works.

For Christmas 2015, my wife gave me a great 3 axis talking skull with moving eyes so I could upgrade one of the skeletons from just a moving jaw skull. Then a friend suggested that there had to be other applications for the rest of the year. This got me thinking, and when I saw the Alexa Billy Bass I knew what I had to do, and the Yorick project was born. I'm pretty happy with the result," said McGurrin.
