If Dubai does manage to become more pedestrian-friendly, connecting all these super development projects toghether via pedestrian bridges, tunnels, metro, cycling paths etc...It's going to be the best city in the world for a skycrapers' enthusiast. Nothing could rival it i think.

I'm going to guess a moving walkway, like those seen in airports. I know Dubai Airport has one, but I presume you mean "never seen before in Dubai city centre".

You know Dubai, moving walkways aren't enough and far too slow. It's a hyperloop is my guess.

As stated by Gabriel, it's a method which has never been see before. Pedestrian walkways are pretty common, I believe

Infos concerning the model :
Quote:
Crafted by skilled engineers and professionals, the replica in aluminum and 3D-printed cladding elements weighs 3,000 kg, and took over 4,000 hours to be completed.
Insteresting facts concerning the tower :
Quote:
Among the impressive world-firsts, the icon will have a record breaking 110 km of cables - the most used in any single structure - weighing over 18,000 tonnes. Horizontally aligned, the cables would stretch from Dubai to Abu Dhabi.
Quote:
Tower bud, equivalent to the height of an 80-storey building, is being constructed using 12,000 tonnes of steel, while the ‘stem’ will be built using 240,000 cubic metres of concrete, equivalent to 40,000 truckloads, or equivalent to the concrete needed for a sidewalk from London to Barcelona.

Since parts of this building are already being built, I suppose it is gonna be a bit faster.

I really hope this means its prefabricated .. but saying "its being constructed" can and usually means when construction is due they will use that much steel NOT that they will build it beforehand.

They say bulb equivalent to a 80F tower ... could this mean that the bulb itself will have similar number of floors?! I guess time will tell .. its insane the bulb itself is a supertall hanging on a tower
