Pneumatic Tube Transport To Send Teeth To The ‘Tooth Fairy’

JEFF HIGHSMITH of MAKE and Makezine wanted to bring the Tooth Fairy into the 21st century, so he invented the Tooth Fairy Pneumatic Transport.

Using a smartphone as a control pad at the station, Jeff showed his young son who just lost a tooth how to fill the capsule with his treasure and send it to the Tooth Fairy. 

After finally launching the capsule, the smartphone displays a fun animation showing the “real time” travel of the capsule as it travels to the Tooth Fairy’s “tree house.”

Of course, the pneumatic tube simply travels to a second station Jeff built with a cover so the kids have no idea as he replaced the tooth with cash.

To bring the Tooth Fairy into the 21st century for your kids simply follow Jeff’s instructions
