Futuristic Door Concept

Futuristic Door Concept

Designed by Brazil based design group Nódesign, the Maxdoor is a modern door concept that comes with a remote control, a digital door bell, number lighting that displays the house number, and a battery that powers the door up to one week without power supply. This futuristic door can be locked or unlocked at the click of a button, which is similar to a central lock door function on the car. I don’t know what happened if its battery runs out of power, maybe you will not be able to enter your own house. See more pictures and watch a video after the jump to get more details.
