It seems the endless minutes spent waiting for elevators to arrive has been inspiring more engineers. We’ve already covered the world’s first rope-free elevator and now, UK firm PLP Architecture is using a new system to create more adaptive elevator experiences. PLP has proposed an innovative propulsion system based on the Maglev technology. This uses magnets to move the elevator car along its tracks, rather than the conventional pulley systems. Called SkyPod, the car will move along a set of rails that are capable of bending, like rollercoaster systems. Elevator cars will therefore be able to travel in every direction, like…
