Developed by the design firm Edison Junior, DoorBot turns your doorbell into a one-way video and two-way communication device. When someone rings your doorbell your phone rings like a regular phone call. When you answer the call a video chat is launched showing you who is at the door. You are then able to talk to the visitor. 

Sounds cool right? Wait there's more.

The DoorBot is bundled with Lockitron, the keyless, smartphone-controlled door lock. Roommate forgot his or her keys? No problem. Press a button and you can unlock your door. 

The crowdfunded project is seeking $250,000 to begin production. Check out the promo video above and if you want to impress your friends by opening your door from your living room couch head over to Christie Street to help fund to the project.
