An 85-year old 5-story building in Shanghai was lifted off the ground and moved 200 feet away as to prevent it from demolition. China, in its latest efforts to preserve historic monuments, literally made a nearly century-old primary school building in Shanghai’s eastern Huangpu district ‘walk’ to a safe distance.

- Using a new technology dubbed ‘the walking machine’, where supports act like robotic legs, the school building inched laboriously along, one tiny step at a time. In the walking machine, robotic legs are distributed into two groups: One moves up, whereas the other moves down. There are sensors attached that help govern the position of specific structural components at a given time, in turn, allowing for the building to ‘move forward’.
