This is a normal peephole, except it displays the date, time, outside temperature and weather (via bluetooth?).

See the illustration for a peep.

       But why? +

       Why not!

       You should have a danger index in the case of different people at the door, employing some AI type software to develop proper warnings. A "boobies" icon would be fun, too.

       Well, that would be a little redundant, but awesome nonetheless. A camera peephole might be in order...funny, I'm thinking of the terminator and his very computational analysis-vision system.

       I was against this until I saw the illustration. Very nice. I particularly like the idea of showing a 'cloudy' icon when you can clearly see that it's cloudy. Something about that appeals to my simple sense of humour. [+]

       I was hoping for something a little more people oriented, like a peephole that keeps track of how many people walk past your door or repeat passers or whatever. I am always curious about traffic patterns and such. I don't care about the weather. But still, if it was worth the trouble I would put it in my door. Only my door faces a hallway, and the weather is always the same there. Not terribly invigorating.   

       How about mine just gives me an inspirational quote each day when I look out. I would like that.

       Include a photoeye looking INTO the house: "You are the 00000013 visitor to this peephole"   

       Include a link to the bakery: "You have accumulated 25 1/2 buns and 2 1/2 fishbones"   

       The possibilities are endless. I love it. Bake this!

       I find myself sad that the image is no longer hosted on whichever server folded.   

       The HB should host its own internal images... able to be deleted by the poster of course, but still...   

       ...hosted here, not as external links.   

       Just the artwork...   

       I like the username "ophello"; I imagine someone was unsure whether they were Ophelia or Othello.

       I'll bun anything with artwork.
