Cheap home elevator powered by vacuum, installed in hours.

Developed in Argentina, this little elevator from Dayton looks sleek by the stairway, has a footprint of a square meter, installs in a few hours, and is capable of lifting a standing person of up to 450 pounds up two complete storeys. You can even take it with you when you move.
New vacuum elevator installs in a few hours at a budget price

Dayton Elevator distributes the "Pneumatic Vacuum Elevator".
Alibaba links to another one manufactured in Egypt.
I see online references to the Dayton one being about $25000 in 2005 and another reference to the Egyptian one being about half that price.
