There are plenty of ways to embarrass yourself in front of friends and family. One of the worst is by running into a sliding glass door while in your own home. I mean, it’s your door, you’d think you would remember to check and see that it’s open. On the bright side, smacking your face into the glass does give testament to your thorough cleaning skills. However, if you really want to make sure this doesn’t happen in the future, you might consider investing in this AutoSlide Lifestyle Kit.
This kit turns your boring old sliding door into something straight out of Star Trek. Sure, a door that automatically slides open when you approach it might not be the coolest piece of tech from that show, but it’s still fun to have. You can set the door to open at the push of a button, or when the infra-red sensors detect your approach. In the event of a power outage, you can still open and close the door manually, without harming the motor. As cool as this might sound, the $400 price tag might not be justifiable.
