Build you own Arduino-controlled "Star Trek" Automatic Door
For something different we have Youtube user "shakosonic2" who created his own automatic sliding kitchen door which apparently resembles those from the Starship Enterprise. Although no design instructions are offered, there is an excellent description in the following video:
Although building such a door would seem relatively simple yet expensive for the task, it is a great use of an Arduino board, pneumatic systems and a lot of spare time. If anyone else has recreated such a system with an Arduino-style board - please contact us.
