World's First Freeform Curved Escalator.

Jack Levy, a Professor of Mechanical Engineering in London has taken a different route with the traditional escalator... (a curvy route).
Up until now escalators that we all know have only gone in a straight line... with Jack Levy's new patented design, the Levytator, architects can open up their imaginations even wider when incorporating these curvy escalators in shopping malls, theme parks, casino hotels and even airport baggage claims....the possibilities of shaping escalators in virtually any shape with the Levytator are endless.

...check out the video demo of a working prototype/model below.
