Transportation Via Bank Suction Tube

I have been talking about this forever, and considering that I don't have the funding to do it myself, I guess I'm glad someone is running with my idea. So you know that suction tube they have at the bank when you go through the drive through? I've been saying for many years that they need a human-sized one people could get in to and be shot at high speeds through a system of tubes to get to whatever destination they desire. Well, someone has actually improved on that idea. And the video is cool.

I like the idea of the vacuum tubes, and that they are cheaper to build, and a lot faster than an airplane.

I could be wrong, but it seems like it would be really fun too.
