Being a tall guy I have no trouble reaching the top shelf be
it for liquor or the seldom used glasses and crockery in the
kitchen cabinets. Others may not have it so easy and so
there are stools and ladders and such similar height assists.
A row of high-mounted kitchen cabinets are actually
individual units, each mounted on vertical tracks set into
the walls. On the lower edge of each are two buttons.
Pressing one will gently lower that cabinet to countertop
level for easily accessing the upper shelves, and the other
will raise the cabinet as smoothly back upwards.

||I think I remember doing one like this, too.
||I think you did, something about bringing the top of a
cabinet arcing down for access.
||I won't say "WKTE", but powered-lift/lower cupboards have
been around a while.
