The Modern Smoke Detector

While sufing the web last night, researching pocket doors, door hardware, shower pans and everything else architectural, I stumbled upon Architectural Devices. They have developed a beautiful little smoke detector that sits flush with the wall, or ceiling, finish. The only pitfalls of the device are: it has not yet been mass produced; at $130., it's a bit too pricey; and it is not a combination smoke/carbon monoxide detector. Oh well. A brilliant idea nevertheless.

We'll probably end up with a cheap-o unit from Home Depot that will beep away, with every slightest puff of shower steam escaping the bathroom.
