Today let’s have some fun and I will give you an overview of all the great ideas about the future transportation.
- The SkyTran
According to Wikipedia, SkyTran is “Lightweight two-passenger vehicles suspended from elevated passive magnetic levitation tracks are expected to achieve the equivalent of over 200 miles per US gallon (240 mpg-imp; 1.2 L/100 km) fuel economy at 100 miles per hour (160 km/h) or faster.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SkyTran
Its construction is much cheaper than the light rail project and can be constructed without totally changing the environment of the city, which gives it a very high feasibility.
This looks more Sci-Fi or black magic. This solution offers a way to travel from point A to point B with 0 second! The technology behind it is only theory. By knowing all the states of the particles, and we can change states of the other particles in another place, so you seem to just suddenly go to another place.
I don’t think we will have the chance to experience this technology in our lifetime. If you are interested into the quantum physics, have a look at this one!
