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.


Meet Safe T Boy and Safe T Girl, the Elevator Escalator Safety Foundation's new super-hero characters, who teach children how to ride elevators and escalators safely.  They will serve as the mascots for the organization’s cornerstone safety program, Safe T Rider.  The new campaign includes a video, an activity sheet and will soon offer an activity site designed to make children and parents aware of the safety measures they should take when riding elevators, moving walks and escalators.


“Our goal of the Elevator Escalator Safety Foundation (EESF) is to develop and disseminate safety materials to the public in order to eliminate preventable accidents on the industry’s equipment,” said EESF chairperson, Tom Sybert. “The unveiling of the new Safe-T-Rider characters and video at the NAEC Convention was a huge hit. Our new super-hero campaign will resonate with children, capture their attention and help them remember three basic principles - hold on, lace up and face forward – before riding.”  

EESF is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization was created by the elevator and escalator industry and developed the Safe T Rider program in 1993.  The mission of EESF is to educate the public on the safe and proper use of industry equipment. EESF currently administrates two more programs including Rise Up Safe Rider, a program designed for University students and A Safe Ride, focusing on educating adults and seniors.
