Going Up?

German tech firm, ThyssenKrup, aims to provide high-rise visitors –– whether it be an office building or an apartment complex –– a more convenient way of getting to your destination, says the Association of Mature American Citizens.  They are in the process of testing a revolu-tionary kind of elevator –– one that goes up and down and sideways.

And, there’ll be no need for cables because the Maglev uses rails and magnetic fields to ferry passengers around their buildings.  But, don’t look for a Maglev system to come to a high rise near you very soon.  This type of indoor transportation costs about five times more than your garden-variety elevator.
