Interesting that the lifter bots were battery powered... Carbon nanotubes conduct very well- I would have thought they would run ac through the two strands so that the lifter bots could never run out of power. (Not that I am assuming that was the problem they encountered.)

Nifty stuff though. I really hope I get to see an elevator in my lifetime. :)
