daytona elevator

By Bruce Eaton

Bring the Jettson’s lifestyle to your home with your very own vacuum driven, Daytona Elevator tube system. Requiring only a 1 meter footprint (unlike conventional elevators that require a shaft and tons of hardware and such) the Daytona Elevator is self-supporting, constructed of aluminium and polycarbonate and takes just a few hours to install. Being able to fit into most 2 or 3 story homes, it is rated at a 450lbs lift capacity, so while it will move crippled old Grandpa, it won’t move your entire weight set upstairs.

Also nice is that due to the laws of physics, you cannot freefall in this thing: the air just slowly lowers you if, say, the power were to go out, leaving you safe and trapped inside the transporter tube. After looking around I found out that this thing is a noisy beast, coming in at 87 decibels when operating. That is as loud as a coffee grinder or a tractor. While no price is available, you have to schedule a meeting for a quote. The rubber gaskets for the thing cost $200 a pop, so we’re talking serious cash here.

A graduate of Colgate University, Bruce is one of the elite Henro or pilgrims who have completed the 900 mile 88 Temple Pilgrimage on the island of Shikoku, Japan by means of foot power, a feat (no pun intended.... ok maybe alittle) which is no laughing matter. He not only finished this task with a crippling leg injury but he has attained enlightenment according to the monks on Koyasan. Currently the 23 year old is living in San Antonio where he spends his time working as a Data Analyst but also trying to accomplish his next great challenge, drinking all 200 beers at the Flying Saucer. Having recently married his long time friend from college and seen as nuts for doing so, Bruce relishes his life and hot dogs generously. KANPAI!!


  1. Based on their site, I think the noise is pretty much confined to the pump assembly, which can be place in an attic or machine room up to 30′ away from the elevator.
