Sliding doors ain’t exactly new tech, but this innovative concept uses zero electricity and depends on the person’s weight to to open and close.  It works by stepping on a foot plate that engages a set of gears that trigger a counter weight that pulls the doors open.  Step off the plate and the same weight slides the doors closed.  Simple, neat and best of all energy efficient.  Video below.
