Gene Kelly's Door

tap tap, come in

Install Gene Kelly's Door, and you never have to worry about forgetting your keys again. This is because it's a door entry system that requires you to perform a short tap dance on its specially adopted front step. When the dance pattern corresponds to that already stored in the system, the door opens.

Get it wrong and you're treated a dousing with water from above, delivered to the tune of 'Singing In The Rain' to help you try again.

       Is this to be done on Mother Kelly's doorstep?

       Good idea [+]. Relevant but not prior art from blackberry people[link].

       // specially adopted front step //   

       So even if it's actually someone else's front step, you treat it like it's your own ? Very altruistic …

       Get it wrong twice and it's, Slaughter On Fifth Avenue....Yours.

       That's going to be amazingly popular with your neighbours when you stagger home at 0243 on a Sunday morning …

       It will make your neighbour Fred uh, stare.   

       groans..... but excellent

       It may also make your eyes adore a Duncan.

       Ha,ha, pure genius

       I can't take credit for it, actually I heard it at that watering hole based on the fake merchandise theme, the Bar Is Knockoff.

       Even that would be preferable to Frankie Vaughan singing 'Green Door'.

       If it also tripped the light, that'd be fantastic.   

       I would ask for ballet parking.

       However, your inept dancing might cause Daniel, who otherwise wholly admires you, to depart. People would say "Look at your fan Dan go".

       That would probably break him.
