How does the hinge make the door move?
By converting hydraulic power into movement. The oil is pushed through small channels when the door opens, creating the exact right amount of resistance for the door to open smoothly without gaining too much speed. When the door closes, the oil flows back through these small channels, once again creating the exact right amount of resistance for the door to close smoothly at the right speed.
