Admit it, you want a vacuum tube elevator in your house
Being a nerd, there’s a soft spot in my heart for pneumatic messaging systems. I just like the idea of putting something in a tube and firing it at high speeds with nothing but the power of sucking air. And now, some genius has put together a way to use the same tech to install an elevator in your house in hours for relatively dirt.
The pneumatic elevator being distributed by Daytona Elevator is actually ingenious in a lot of ways. Built primarily for the disabled, they’re freestanding, so you don’t have to dig a foundation or install a hydraulic lift. They’re built out of aluminum and polycarbonate, so they’re light and strong. And they’re easy to install: One can be up and running within a day.
They are also, of course, awesome. The real appeal of this thing is that you float up and down in a clear bubble. It’s a bit like being in a bad science fiction movie, except it’s real, actually works, and doesn’t involve jumpsuits.
These are priced “by request” and thus are pretty expensive. But come on: Who doesn’t want their own space elevator?
