  1. I think it’d be cool to integrate this with a lockbox which won’t open unless you blow a < legal limit. Great to keep your keys, phone (no drunk dials), or the power cord/battery to your computer (no drunk emails/facebooks). Just make it so the lock isn't easy to defeat using brute drunk strength.

The Maker Shed is brought to you by Maker Media, the makers of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Faire, and much more.
