This One Wins the Door Prize

Our own Dominic Muren might not have won the Designboom Door Competition had this been around. Apparently it detects your shape and multiple strips slide open to match it, closing up behind you. Infrared sensors at the end of the strips evidently activate them. Considering how much energy is wasted when stores leave their doors open and air condition the street, we imagine this could be useful. Who knows, perhaps they can bring you clothes that fit by sizing you up as you pass through the door. ::Tanaka via ::wemakemoneynotart
