During the next two years alone, 187 skyscrapers are expected to pop up across the globe — each of which will rise 820 feet in the air. As developers look to build taller and taller, some elevator companies are exploring ways to revolutionize vertical travel.

A recent report by Bloomberg examined new technologies addressing speed, capacity and, in some cases, direction in skyscrapers of the future. In this video, The Real Deal looks at the go-to technology that’s being engineered by some of the world’s leading elevator firms.
