ThyssenKrupp has released a new elevator system which operates without any cables, has the ability to have multiple cars in one shaft and can now travel horizontally as well as vertically. This opens up all kinds of possibility for new ways to build and makes elevator technology much more efficient. Cant wait to see what some creative architects will think up with this technology.
ThyssenKrupp has put together a great website to show off their new technology. I recommend you go there to learn more.
