Floating Elevator / elevator

Floating Elevator
Floating Elevator

The energy supply is on a shortage in recent years and outage can happen any moment. It is an urgent issue as how to save power on elevators and mitigate the already tensed-up power supply. Floating Elevator is an elevator designed to harvest buoyancy to power itself. By changin he weight of water coming in and going out of the air tank, the elevator will automatically go up or down. Even more, the elevator spins around as it goes up and down, and the spinning energy is harvested to generate power. No power is consumed in any of the movements above. It will certainly become a new design that brings new economic and environmental benefits.
