From watching science fiction film and television, I think we all know that the future is every door a sliding door.
Just think about shows like Star Trek, Babylon 5, and even futuristic shows that don’t take place in space. Except for the newer Battlestar Galactica, I think we all know that we will soon have no need for doorknobs or hinges.
I have a video after the jump of this particular sliding door, which is essentially a DIY project from this YouTube subscriber. There are more detailed instructions of how to create your own Star Trek door here if you want to build one for yourself. Of course, it is going to take a little longer than a weekend for this one.
You will note that there is a button to open this Star Trek door, which means that there is no standing in front with your arms crossed behind your back like Commander William Riker. I guess you’ll need to make your own automatic opening sensor, or whatever.
There is a similar Star Trek sound effect, and there apparently is a way to shut off the air. I guess the door’s creator is really planning to spend some time in space.
I’m guessing that you will need a lot of time on your hands to create this futuristic home. Will you be the coolest or the geekiest man on your block if all your doors are sliding ones? There’s something to think about.
