I think the benefit will be very much in environments where a couple of little,
probably embedded, CPU's can communicate with more intelligence and faster. I
think about the car-industry and possibly droids. Both can be done with current
technology but that will always be a three steps communication, with doors it
should go more directly.
I also received a mail from David Brownell, that there are some patents on the
door mechanism, which I wasn't aware of.
Hope this answers your question.
