The picture below is of a printed automatic door opener that the creater uses to open and close a chicken coop door on a timer. The system uses a timing device and a stepper motor to open and close the door. I think this is a great labor saving device. It's basically a timed actuator. This could be adapted to changing the position of solar pannels, opening and closing a doggy door while the owner is away...the options are endless!
Below is a picture of a water wheel from thingiverse. Not special for any particular reason, other than I want to buil a big wooden gristmill when I'm older.
