    Hi Gabriel,

    We're in the process of cleaning up the code. The repository should be public today, or at the very least by the end of the week.

    Nice. Another suggestion would be to create a beer fridge that only opens for certain people using face technology or if they sing a particular song. Very similar to the Molson Canadian beer fridge (bing it for videos).

    I would love to do that in my house!

    I'd only be concerned with the hardware being exposed like that on the inside of the door. What keeps the motherboard and other hardware from being destroyed?
