Episode 7 - Redesigning 1,000,000+ Elevators

Cover - Build Builds Episode 7

Change stems from challenging the status quo to determine if something needs to be done differently.

As the human race, we were only able to get to where we are today because innovators throughout history had the foresight to tackle problems, many of which might be considered impossible by the rest of the world at the time.

Over the last few months, I have been researching on how to best implement contact-free controls to help reduce the spread of germs amid the pandemic. Some progress has been made on early prototypes designed for elevators (as a starting point).

Along the way, I came to the realization of something.

There is still a lot of room to optimize the performance of elevators. Considering the technologies we have now, elevators are not operating as well as they should be. And I want to contribute to what needs to be done, especially what needs to be done *differently*.
