I guess sci-fi technology is already here. The pneumatic vacuum residential elevator moves passengers by means of pressurization up to four floors. The benefits of a pneumatic vacuum elevator over a traditional elevator include fast installation, no lubrication, and no need for an engine room in some subterranean level in your house. The main concern we have is the lack of space. From the videos
we saw on the company's web site, a typical male will fit in pretty tight.
We hope the technology advances quickly with this one. With homes getting smaller and smaller and multi-level homes being the solution residential elevators will become more of the norm. That or humanoids.
