We’ve been having a bit of a tech-crush here at MAKE, on pneumatic tube systems. We wrote about it in a recent Lost Knowledge column, talked about it on Make: Talk, and Dale went to Molly Wright Steenson’s inspiring talk at ETech. In this San Jose Ignite video, entitled “It Really is a Series of Tubes,” Molly presents a wonderful survey of pneumatic technologies of the 1800s, all in five minutes.
Now I’m REALLY in love.

Looks like a series of pipes to me.
Not only was that a cool topic but that whole presentation format rocks too. Thanks for posting it, I had no idea they used to use a system like that.
