Get Your Burgers Through A Super Fast Pneumatic Tube System [Video]

You know how you can go to the drive through at the bank and send your deposits through a fast-moving pneumatic tube system? At Christchurch’s C1 Cafe, you’ll be able to use that procedure to receive burgers and fries. They have at least one working tube, but they’re planning to install additional tubes to serve additional tables.

The burgers go through the system at approximately 87 miles per hour, but don’t worry – they’ve built in air brakes and air pressure pockets to make sure the canister slows as it approaches your table. The craziest part is that they’ve been testing the system and the contents remain intact and upright. Science is neat.

See the system in action on The Press.
