Those that do both up and down as well as sideways have been planned and could be built, but I don't think any have been implemented. There are others that go up at angles (the oldest still in use is in the Masonic Washington Memorial in Alexandria, Virginia, and they have two) or along a curving track (inside the arch in St. Louis, Missouri).

Yes. I was on one in an airport. It was a strange feeling to suddenly shift directions.

I was also going to mention Luxor. Conveyor belts or "moving sidewalks" at usually used to go sideways

Every elevator is capable of doing that. You just need to lay down inside.

I can remember reading some years ago that Otis was working on the idea . . . . don't know if there have been many installations . . .. would expect them in Las Vegas and Dubia first! Some of the rides at Disney move around up/down, sideways, room-to-room, (like the terror tower or whatever the call it) but that's hardly the same as a passenger elevator.
How about: I know that there are condos in Miami (and elsewhere) where each unit includes garage space IN YOUR UNIT. You drive into the common garage, onto the ramp or whatever, and it takes you and your car up to your units and deposits you there !

The Luxor Casino in Las Vegas has inclinators, they go up and sideways at the same time. Made me dizzy though, I didn't like it.

sideways is more like a train. up/down relies on a hoisting mechanism and that can't move -- it is fixed in the elevator shaft
