After a week like this, I think we all need something a little on the lighter side.

Mobile phone technology set to revolutionise things we already do quite easily

One of the biggest launches at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona is the I-open; an app which allows you to open your front door by just twisting your phone as if it was a door handle. ‘This is breakthrough technology’, said marketing manager Chris Davies, ‘the phone’s action even works with a gloved hand which is a big advantage when compared to the friction deficit presented by traditional door handles if used with gloves, mittens and greasy hands from chip-eating. This feature alone should make it a must buy for anyone who opens doors, whether professionally or just as part of their life-skills set.’

Read the whole thing, it actually quite clever. We should all take heed of the advice in the last couple of paragraphs.

    Sorry, but I want the ‘comb app’.

    But does it work on the kind of door handle where you have to push something in or down to open the door? And more importantly, does it include a “key” app that allows me to unlock the door from the outside?
