Inter-face lift

It was my last day at The Ministry a week ago, everyone had a whip round and I'm now the proud owner of a Space Hopper.What I will miss is the lifts, proper right 21st century lifts.

It was my last day at The Ministry a week ago, everyone had a whip round and I'm now the proud owner of a Space Hopper.

What I will miss is the lifts, proper right 21st century lifts. The amazing thing is there are no buttons. There's a touch pad in the lift area with floor numbers on it, and it chooses a lift for you (watch out for Lift E though, there's rumours of trouble, and the last thing you want is a troublesome lift). Inside the lift (I would say see photo but in my dash for Aspire One completeness, I've deleted them) there's even less of an interface -- just an alarm button.

I guess the reasoning is that it improves the flow of the lifts and reduces overcrowding. I am guessing here. People don't really like it, they're used to the interface from yesteryear. How 20th century…
