The World's Fastest Elevator
According to Forbes:
Toshiba Elevator and Building Systems Corp. (TELC) today announced installation of the world's fastest passenger elevator in the world's tallest building, Taipei 101, in Taipei, Taiwan. This elevator, developed by TELC, runs at a speed of 1,010 meters per minute or 60.6km per hour and has been officially certified by Guinness World Records in its 2006 edition.In possibly-related news, the world's slowest elevator (at the Archer-Avenue side of the Jamaica station on the Long Island Rail Road) was closed a few months ago as part of the reconstruction project. If the speed of light is the absolute standard of fast, that elevator was the absolute standard of slow.
