Speed walking

The BBC has a great article on the trottoir roulant rapide, an extra fast moving walkway currently undergoing trails in Paris.

The animation is neat, and the description reminds me of the moving walkways described in Isaac Asimov books. It only goes up to 9km/h at the moment, but that’s still a pretty fast way of getting around stations and airports.
