Ed Rogers has built a system for automatically closing his bedroom windows. Using a webcam, open-source motion detection software, arduino and components printed using a 3D printer, he rigged the windows to visually detect passing trains and shut the windows to block out the noise. They close rather slowly, but at least he no longer has to get out of bed to close them all. In this video Rogers demonstrates how his system works:
