Omnidirectional Elevators: Maglev Tech to Reshape Skylines

Effectively using the same magnetic levitation technologies employed in high-speed trains, the MULTI elevator system conveys people horizontally as well as vertically without ropes and at record speeds, all while allowing multiple elevators to traverse the same shafts.

Allowing fast vertical interior transit, the elevator has already revolutionized the shape of cities once — this breakthrough may enable a new version to do it again, not only cutting down on wait and travel times but also by enabling versatile sideways travel through structures.
