Check out the stunning 6-story spiral escalators at this new Shanghai mall

In case you haven't yet gotten a glimpse of these dazzling spiral escalators up-and-running in the New World Daimaru Department Store on East Nanjing Road, officially opening tomorrow, take a look and be awed.

Mitsubishi Electric is the only company to manufacture spiral escalators, which can be spotted at the Wheelock Place in Singapore, The Times Square Shopping Mall in Hong Kong and various other lavish shopping centers and casinos around the world. Still, there aren't many to exist, and the elegant work of engineering is definitely a sight to behold.
