Winner announced

We challenged the general public to tell us what they would connect to an elevator – with the promise to bring the winning idea to life in a real experiment! With so many incredible ideas, it’s clear there are no limits to the possibilities connectivity could bring to our future. Stay tuned as we experiment on the winning idea and make it happen in real life - just like we did with the mind-controlled elevator experiment!


Our voters love these top three ideas – and we love them too! They explore the inspiring possibilities that limitless connectivity could bring to our future spaces. Thanks to open APIs, we can connect KONE DX Class elevators with almost anything.
