A retired professor in Tamil Nadu's Coimbatore has designed a homemade lift using a compressor. The lift, that is able to carry 200 kg of weight, can move up to two floors. The highlight of the lift, however, is that it can even run when there's no electricity.
The lift has been designed to work as long as there is air pressure in the compressor and the retired professor took six months to design this unique innovation.
Professor Dr Vijayan, who designed the unique lift told ANI, "It can work even when there is no power. As long as the air pressure is there in the compressor, it will work. Designing took me six months."
Inspiration for this homemade lift comes from the fact that many old people come to visit him and going by stairs is inconvenient for them, he told ANI.
The retired professor hopes that his innovation will ease the life of older people visiting him.
