It looks like something out of Star Trek, but we can assure you it isn’t. This door senses your body shape, and the panels open to accommodate your exact size. Gimmicky but really very cool indeed. We’re not sure what would happen if you tried to walk through quickly though.

If you’ve got small children, then this is the door for them. With a little door built into the main one, they can open and close it easily, without having to reach up for the handle. It could also be used if your pets are clever enough to use handles.
