    Cool! That's just like what the Jetson's had! It's only taken how many years for technology to catch up with the cartoons? :biggrin:

    They already have those cool high-speed horizontal escalators...


    All we need now are Flintstonesque cars. That'll cut down on CO2 emissions and global warming.

    I think that's pretty awesome. It looks somewhat odd out in the middle of the room.

    I wish they had pictures in various applications - it's probably much easier to have an elevator simply raise you to the next floor when it has a balcony, versus going from a basement to 2nd story.

    So far the only problem is that the occupants eyes tend to pop out from the vacuum.
