Man Rigs His Windows to Close Automatically When Trains Pass by

(Video Link)

Ed Rogers likes to keep the windows of his bedroom open. But he lives next to active railroad tracks, which makes his bedroom very noisy at times. So he assembled a machine that closes the windows automatically when a motion sensor detects a train on the tracks. The windows don't close quickly, but once they are shut, there is a noticeable decrease in noise.

It's strange he'd used a motion detector when his primary problem is sound. A sound meter pick up the train at a further distance, and would work for any noises (low flying plane, loud music from neighbours, etc).
