STORY KEEPER / DIGITAL DOORLOCK

STORY KEEPER
STORY KEEPER

The doorlock is different from usual numeric coded ones, instead it is coded with own stories of each family. For example, “I’m very happy because my lovely mother made me a tasty doughnut.” This phrase then gets iconized orderly and becomes a code of a family’s doorlock. This is a daily and familiar story of the family but also very strange code to outsiders.
The codes can be memorized easily through associate memory. Associate memory is one of the broadly used ways to remember. By associating an object with related ones you are able to easily memorize it. Depending on how you set up the icons, you can make up an infinite series of code.
