The world’s first rope-free elevator service named MULTI could change the way high-rise buildings are made. The twin-elevator technology, formed by Germany-based company Thyssenkrupp, works by replacing ropes with linear motors that can move up and down and also, uniquely, horizontally. In a single continuous loop, multiple cabins travel safely up one shaft and down another. The only visible difference to passengers is the doors open every 15 to 30 seconds, despite having fewer shafts compared to standard elevator systems.
