How many times have you walked into the wrong side of the door? How many times have you been momentarily confused as to whether or not you push or pull that obscure door handle which isn’t so obvious in its intended use?
What if you never had to worry about doors again? What if we could have an omni-directional door? [TVMiller] couldn’t find any examples of this, so he decided to build his own prototype. He calls it the Any Way Door.
The Any Way Door is just a 1:12 scale version, but as you can see in the following video, it works pretty well — and if anything would make for a very cool door that interior designers / architectures would love.
The question is, can it be done at full size effectively?
[TVMiller] would love to find out, but does not have the time or resources to build a full scale model, so he’s invited the Hackaday audience to give it a shot. He’s posted the project on Hackaday.io and welcomes anyone to join and contribute.
What do you guys think? Is it possible? Is it viable? Or do we deserve it when we walk into poorly designed doors?
