The company that manufactures it, however, would like to stress that it moves slowly and lacks the speed of a pneumatic tube at a drive-through bank or pharmacy. And the company emphasizes this issue as though it is a selling point rather than a disadvantage. Shoot, aside from the inevitable head injuries and broken bones, that sounds like a lot of fun!
Dayton Elevator makes elevators, wheelchair lifts, and stairlifts. Their elevators operate through pneumatic pressure rather than pulleys and weights. The company says that, as a result, they're easier to install than conventional elevators. They also make any home look like the set of a 70s era science fiction show.
