A Nine Button Keypad gives people a 1/9 chance of entering rooms. Push middle left and instantly your master bath door opens before you can say "zoor".

       And all the water runs out...

       Zimmy divert all available power to shields.   

       For those of us a little less techno-savvy, how about a dumbed down version called Coors. We could have a 1/9 chance of drinking the right beer, and if successful we could gain access to the pisser. If not, well at least we don't have 99 bottles on the wall...

       Ever since watching 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy,' I haven't been able to walk through automatic sliding doors without thinking, 'Whrrrrr.... Thank you!'

       Huh? Is this supposed to be secure or something?   

       That 1 in 9 chance very soon escalates to a 1 in 1 chance, because they'll just press every button until the door opens.

       Maybe after 3 wrong choices the zoor would lock and begin to insult you, your IQ, and your families' history through the house speaker system? Possibly also the keypad could have the "gag lightswitch" system which activated after 4 miscues.

       Oops! The occupant of the bathroom forgot to lock the door. No warning sound of doorknob rattling to give occupant a chance to protest...

       Just the ZZZZZZZZZZ of a chain saw/etiquette fourchette through the door in case non-occupant forgot to check if it was unlocked.
