It's no surprise that NuVa is a Japanese company, because its pneumatic elevator is one of the most stylish and compact ones we've ever seen. It offers its occupant 360° of vision on the journey up and down, and, thanks to its simple tube-like design, it could fit in a variety of locales, from homes to offices. It only fits one at a time, though, so it wouldn't do so well in a place with many bodies to move. Sadly, we don't know much more than how awesome this thing looks.
