the humble elevator

I'm not sure if this is pure German ingenuity, or a left-over relic from the GDR, but today when I visited an office in the former "east" of Berlin, this is what I found - an automatic, continuously revolving elevator.  Apparently it's one of the last in Germany to survive.  It runs over 5 floors and you simply step on and off when you get to the correct floor.  Maximum capacity - 2 people. You can also stay on and do a loop - it functions like a ferris wheel.  Cool, non?
