Hitachi plans world's fastest elevators
April 28 , 2014
A Chinese scraper could possibly have the fastest elevators in the world that will travel at a speed of 44.7mph. This means the elevators will take 43 seconds to cover 95 floors.
However, "when you're traveling that distance, you're going to get pressures on your ears changing," an expert said. Hitachi mentioned that it will adjust air pressure inside the elevators in order to resolve this issue.
The fastest ones are currently inside a building in Taiwan and move at 37.7 mph.
