5. The automatic science fiction door (Etaf door)


No matter what size you are. This automatic door is always fit for your size. The Etaf door makes users feel like they're aboard a science fiction spacecraft, but the technology used to power it is pure 21st Century. The size of a standard-size door opening, the Etaf consists of about 35 rows of two-inch tall, vertical sliding metal bars that are split down the middle. When a user approaches the doorway, infrared sensors along the top and sides of the door sense a person's height and width. The corresponding bars mirror the silhouette, sliding the metal stripes on the door open just enough to let them through. It exhibits personalization at its best, with everybody who enters getting their own specific way in. (Source)

8. The revoling door that gives off energy


The Revolution Door is a modified revolving door comprised of three parts - a redesigned central core replacing that of any existing or new revolving door, a mechanical/electrical system that harnesses human energy and redistributes electricity to an output, and an output device that maps the harnessed energy. By mechanically harvesting a negligible amount of human energy and converting it to a tangible display through the use of a generator, the Revolution Door will directly communicate a single person's contribution to an energy cycle possible through the metabolic relationship between people, technology, and architecture.
