Wow, very novel. I can't WAIT until my local grocery store comes up with the idea of doors that open automatically. And what better way than THIS???

yeah its a good idea. until your running to get to the bathroom at 5 am and smack your head into the part that didnt open all the way at the top!! they should engineer it so there is sensors at the bottom of the slides also to open them so you can prevent that problem of it not picking you up on the sensors cause your shaqueal oneal!!

So those long dangly beads and strips of plastic outside my deli and fish and chip shop is going to be replaced by this?

If you think about it. It's like the same technology as the conveyer belts at the grocery store... they stop when they see something in front of the sensor.

Except in this case the sliders stop when they don't see anything.

Wow, how pointless. I'm plenty happy with an automatic door that has a motion detector and the whole things open, seems to work much faster then this too

Doesn't seem very secure. Not very solid. I get the feeling i could bust through it.
They need to work on those circular space doors. I guess the best way to desribe them would be to say the ones that open and close like a sphincter. But really cool and they need to make a big WHOOOSHING noise too. you know the ones and you know it would be cool to have them.

looks like a great idea for a place where you might want to keep a room a little more sealed then with a doorway, this way the opening is only as large as whats trying to pass through.

Yak is exactly right. The cost of air-conditioning in Japan is sky-high and the government is trying all sorts of things to get people to use less power on it (cool-biz). However, I think the interest in this invention might have more to do with the Japanese fixation on novelty than with anything utilitarian.

why did that giant blue dildo have boxing gloves on?

kind of novel, but too many moving parts, probably breaks down too often...

God thats such a wank idea, i think japs should just stick to doing the important stuff, like making better games and tvs, and finding new ways of grossing us out by shitting on each other.
