The need for elevators has existed for longer than you can even imagine. In 236 B.C., the Greek mathematician Archimedes designed a rudimentary elevator using ropes and a rotating spindle and called it capstan. The Romans used a hauling device called a winch and counterweights to lift gladiators and animals up to the arena for battle.
Thus you can say that elevators were a unique invention which eventually helped humans to minimize the effort to carry something while going up the building. “It’s a great deal to go up using simple staircases when it comes to taller buildings”- guess you agree on that fact.
In the modern era we have all witnessed several features being incorporated into the elevators, even their design saw a revolutionary change. Scroll below to see some of the most stunning modern elevators around the world.
