A door suitable for spacecraft

The Tanaka company of Japan has invented a door that goes one better than the portals on Star Trek: it opens a silhouette for you to walk through.
The Auto Door consists of individual slats that slide open and closed from the side of the door. Each slat is half the width of the door; each slat has a sensor. If you stand in front of the door, the sensors determine how much of the door needs to open to allow you to enter. [This] minimizes the amount of heating or air conditioning let out of a building, as well as minimizing the entry of pollen or other pollutants from the outside.
