Elevator experiment suggestion
As I can see, acceleration recording in the Elevator experiment is just for fun, aceleration data isn't used.

I would suggest removing acceleration and adding average speed instead (average speed from the start of recording), because pressure fluctuations produce quite strange current speed fluctuations.  One can still use linear regression on height data to derive average speed, but it would be great to have it just on screen.

What I mean is:

Orange line is velocity that calculates in the experiment.
Blue line is average velocity from the beginning of the recording.

P.S. True vertical velocity in the above picture supposed to be 0,375 m/s (subway escalator, 0,75 m/s linear speed, 30 degrees inclination).
