Yes, you read that right. I assert we will need to miniaturize our products’ burden on buildings while having bigger experiences and faster delivery times which requires stronger materials.
Remember Ironman’s super-cool digital screens inside his ocean-side lair? Well today, thyssenkrupp announced that our service technicians will use HoloLens technology in its elevator service operations worldwide.
There is no getting around it. If your building is two stories or hundreds of feet, you are going to need an elevator. You have to meet the American Disabilities Act codes but what you don’t need is a complicated elevator system to travel just a few feet.
The term “smart city” can be open to interpretation. Here are a few prerequisites established a few years ago. A smart city uses technologies to be more intelligent and efficient when using resources.
thyssenkrupp is currently putting the finishing touches on the installation of 30 elevators and 2 escalators that will serve 52 floors at River Point, a new office tower located on a prime piece of property overlooking the Chicago River.
Our social media efforts involve a lot more than just finding and creating relevant content. With nearly 50,000 Facebook followers, we have a lot of people to interact with! Many of those followers enjoy writing to us and getting a response. That interaction with excited elevator fans is one of the most rewarding parts of my job.
We recently learned through Kidd’s Kids about an elevator fan named Frankie. Frankie is a six-year-old boy with Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome; last year he went on a Kidd's Kids trip to Disney World with Dallas-based radio personality Kidd Kraddick. Frankie loves riding in elevators, so we wanted to send him something special. We contacted his mom and mailed him a gift pack of his very own ThyssenKrupp Elevator swag. Our local Dallas, TX office also got involved and sent him a battery-powered elevator button that illuminates when it is pushed.
The Kidd’s Kids program is based on the premise of making a difference in the lives of children with special medical needs.
