"Maxdoor" might just be your door in the future

The bazilian design group nódesign has come up with a new fron door design to go along with "maxhaus" housing concept in Brazil. This new front door concept uses

Along with with the cool feature of not having to set down your groceries to enter you apartment, the "Maxdoor" also features a digital door bell, LED lock and number lighting, sound proofing, hidden peephole and a backup battery, which allows it to work for up to a week without power.

You dream it and with this keyboard, it has the potential to make it happen. Hopefully...
