World's Fastest Elevator Installed In World's Tallest Building

Toshiba Elevator and Building Systems Corp announced the installation of the world's fastest passenger elevator just exactly where it is needed in Taipei 101, the world's tallest building. The elevator runs at a top speed of 1,010 meters per minute when ascending (600 meters per minute on the way down), which works out to 60.6 kilometers per hour.

The Elevator can go from the 5th floor to the 89th floor in 39 seconds. The world's fastest elevator offers the following new technologies:

The world's first pressure control system, which adjusts the atmospheric pressure inside a car by using suction and discharge blowers, preventing those riding inside the car experiencing 'ear popping'.

The World's First All-glass Undersea Restaurant Opens.

15 th April marks the day that the first ever all-glass undersea restaurant in the world opens its doors for business at the Hilton Maldives Resort & Spa. It will sit five meters below the waves of the Indian Ocean, surrounded by a vibrant coral reef and encased in clear acrylic offering diners 270-degrees of panoramic underwater views.

'We have used aquarium technology to put diners face-to-face with the stunning underwater environment of the Maldives', says Carsten Schieck, General Manager of Hilton Maldives Resort & Spa. 'Our guests always comment on being blown away by the colour, clarity, and beauty of the underwater world in the Maldives, so it seemed the perfect idea to build a restaurant where diners can experience fine cuisine and take time to enjoy the views - without ever getting their feet wet.'

Created by MJ Murphy Ltd, a design consultancy based in New Zealand, Ithaa's distinctive feature is the use of curved transparent acrylic walls and roof, similar to those used in aquarium attractions. 'The fact that the entire restaurant except for the floor is made of clear acrylic makes this unique in the world, ' continues Schieck, 'We are currently planting a coral garden on the reef to add to the spectacular views of the rays, sharks and many colorful fish that live around the area".

I am more interested with the 'multi-levels' parking system in Germany. If you are from Germany or experienced with your car parked at these place; and would like to share more or less of this parking system with us, I am much appreciated if you could drop us a few lines at the comment column below so, let the world to share the 'unique' of the amazing parking system!
