I’m pretty sure that I speak for most geeks when I say that we’ve all thought it would be cool to have automatic doors in our house, a la Star Trek. The problem is that most of us don’t get past the dreaming stage and actually attempt to make it happen. Well here’s a guy that did in fact, craft one of his own.
While there aren’t a lot of details here, we can tell you that the door itself is entirely powered by air, thus the nice “whoosh” sound whenever it opens. It seems very well executed, though there was no mention of a sensor to re-open the door if someone is still standing in the doorway after it has decided to close. Sadly, there creator hasn’t listed any instructions on how he went about making it.
