A claw To the sky / Elevator

A claw To the sky

In the future, as the population grows and explodes, skyscrapers are all over around in the Manhattan. With these claws, rapid transfer between buildings is available without going back to the ground floor. Electromagnetic guides of the elevator move the claws up and down efficiently while artificial muscle makes moving freely in the sky possible, creating a whole new traffic system for the city.
