st/air lift

for people that have difficulty with stairs but find 'conventional' stairlifts dull
  [vote for,

the chair is mounted off-centre in a 'zorb' so that it rests with the chair upright. it is powered by jets of air mounted in the steps that create a peristaltic shift up or down the staircase. if the jets fail the 'zorb' provides enough protection for the fall down the stairs.

inspired by hippo's Automatic Blow-Out Staircase of Excitement

       If you connect it to the back end of a central vacuum cleaner, the price won't be so ex'zorb'itant.
