iPhone-Controlled DIY Disappearing Kitchen Island!

For those of you looking to add more space to your kitchen, you might want to take a look at what Tim Thaler did by building an iPhone-controlled disappearing kitchen island.  Simply genius!

After weeks of online research, Mr. Thaler decided a hydraulic scissor lift would make his dream possible. New, the 500-pound piece of machinery costs close to $4,500, but Thaler was able to find a used model on eBay for $380, including shipping. The lift sits in a utility room below the kitchen accessible through a small door in an adjacent room. The door is camouflaged to look like a pool cue rack. Turn the ball rack above the door to the right and an RFID chip within matches up with a sensor on the other side of the wall and the door opens.
