The Escalator

An improvement?

When I was in the mall with Ted a few months ago (I can't remember why), I noticed something about escalators. The escalator is an invention that improved regular stairs, right? Or is it a more efficient elevator? In either case, the escalator takes a step backwards from its predecessor. Elevators and staircases go both up and down (and more), but the escalator only goes one way. Who would try to invent a one-way staircase?

Oh, and:
