#1433: StreamLift

Given that lifts are getting faster and traveling through greater heights, the lifetime cost of overcoming their air resistance may be significant.

Today’s invention is therefore to attach streamlining shells to the tops and bottoms of lifts so that they may create much less turbulence within their shafts.

If these could be made in a lightweight, reinforced material, the underside one could also act as a crush zone in the event of an unplanned descent.
