      What if you make an elevator that's part spiral, but that spiral is gradually getting taller, but ground getting shorter shape, and we have spiraling elevators

    At 4:58 where we see Guinness World Records, it is given that Shanghai is in Japan. This probably needs to be corrected :)

      Shanghai Tower didn’t even feature the worlds fastest lift when you uploaded this video. You are publishing misleading information.

                                The worlds fastest elevator exists because elevators exist. If there are elevators, one of them is bound to be the fastest

                                                          Why not make the elevators go up and to come down people use stairs so that elevators can go down super fast and carry more people up. If people want to go down faster there will be a pole in the middle of the stairs and you can slide down at your own speed
