Automatically Bolt the Door for Incognito Mode

by Shane McGlaun

Google Chrome’s incognito mode is essentially a way for you to hide your porn searches from whoever uses your PC along with you. We all know this. Sure, incognito mode might be used for other things like shopping for gifts or whatever, but we all know the main reason for its existence is surfing for porn.

The catch is that when you fire up incognito mode, it won’t keep someone from walking into your room unannounced and seeing what you car looking at. This is where Mike, the CEO of Useless Duck Company, comes in with this cool Arduino project.

This gizmo has a PC connected to an Arduino Uno using custom software to scan the host PC. When an incognito browser is detected, it triggers a servo, and the door is automatically locked shut. You need to check out the video to see how it works, and to hear Mike’s thinly veiled description of what it’s meant for. It’s pretty amusing.

Like most of the projects from the Useless Duck Company, it’s supposed to be kind of dumb, but it’s actually not a bad idea. Unfortunately, there is no Arduino project that can explain a randomly locked door to your wife.
