The fantasy of a hidden door or concealed wall safe can be made a reality by Creative Home Engineering, the only company that deals exclusively in secret passages and hidden doors. From the classic rotating fireplace to a hydraulically-raised stairway to a Laz-E-Boy that tips back to reveal an escape slide in the floor, this company has been involved in more than 150 stealthy installations nationwide. In an interview for the May issue of Wired, company founder and former robot designer Steve Humble described one of the most involved assignments: "an underground complex with 10 secret-passage doors made from Kevlar-steel ballistic armor, blast-resistant hinges, and multiple redundant locking systems." Nothing like cashing in on paranoia!
