Standing up and manually closing curtains is for old people and Luddites. What we roll with is of the mechanical variety, preferably hooked up to something like a Wiimote to give it that extra bit of nerdiness. This Wiimote curtain project is exactly what we mean. Sure, it's not 1:1 arm to curtain movement, but that's exactly the point of not wanting to close the curtain with your arm, manually. Isn't it? [Hasse.nl]
