News SciFi Inspired Technologies Becoming Real; Turbolift

  1. Jun 27, 2017 #1
    In tech news, ThyssenKrupp has invented the turbolift.

    I'm excited to see it implemented. Hopefully it won't take too long to catch on. Unfortunately, I'm not often in buildings tall enough to benefit from this technology.

    From an engineering perspective or as a user? Would the user notice anything different?

    That's an interesting dichotomy. I'm going to have to say the engineering perspective. I like that it will be functional to arbitrary heights. I also like that they're improving on a facet of the tech that hasn't seen a lot of change in a long time.
