ThyssenKrupp unveils world’s first cable-free, horizontal-vertical elevator

The elevator was invented more than 160 years ago, and engineering firm ThyssenKrupp evidently thinks it’s time to shake things up a bit. They’ve designed the MULTI system: a rope-less horizontal-vertical elevator that’s drawn comparisons to the crazy sideways-moving elevator in Willy Wonka. And now they’ve brought their designs from paper into the real world at an 807 feet high test tower in Rottweil, Germany.
