RFID Locker…

Rfid
Srcasadei made a cool RFID locker

So, I had this old Lions locker that was collecting dust (I got it for Christmas when I was 9). I also happened to have all the parts that I needed to turn this into an RFID safe. AND since I wasn’t too keen on tearing apart the molding around any of the real doors I had access to – I decided to turn this into my next project. The locking mechanism is made up of a cheap $5 sliding bolt that I got at my local Lowes. Actually – the servo is also a a relatively inexpensive piece, seeing as it is a cheap hobby servo that I bought for $10 from sparkfun.com. I used a boarduino (Arduino clone) from Adafruit Industries in order to drive the servo and Parallax RFID.
