One of the average business person’s worst pet-peeves is using an elevator in a big building.  Everyone crowds in on the bottom floor, and then it’s an endless trip, floor-by-floor, until you reach your destination.  Worse, at the end of the day, you get in on your floor, along with 20 other people, and then the elevator stops, going down, floor-by-floor, even though there’s no room for anymore people.  You wave at them, they say, “I’ll wait for the next one,” then you get a migraine and are mean to everyone you meet for the next hour-and-a-half (sorry about that!).

The New York Times has a story on the biggest change in elevator history since the invention of automated-floor-leveling.  New elevators currently being installed in such places as the New York City’s Marriott Marquis and 7 World Trade Center will reduce waiting times and overcrowding.

Instead of pushing the button in the lobby saying you are going up, you punch in your destination floor number.  The elevators run a computer program to determine which elevator is best for you to use.  Therefore, the other 10 of you waiting to get on to go to floor 28 get into one cab, while the three people going to floors 4, 9, and 17 wait for another one.

It seems all very logical.  It will take a lot to get people to adapt to it (much like those people unhappy that the MBTA is going to a tokenless system over the coming months).

Once the general public finds out about it, everyone will be clammoring for the new elevators, everywhere.
