The future after the future- more interesting ideas about future transportation

Today let’s have some fun and I will give you an overview of all the great ideas about the future transportation.

  1. 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.

2. Teleporter
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!

3. Capsules travel
Traveling with barely no friction!

  1. About the idea of the ‘Capsules travel’, I think this, or something similar of this will be possible, in the “far future”. But I think there will appear some problems. The first problem is the safety, using vacuum spaces, there will always be the danger of imploding. Secondly, the price, creating vacuum in that big tunnels will cost a lot of energy.
    So, I think, once it will be possible, but a lot of research is necessary.

  2. The first solution looks like an improved version of a traditional tram or monorail. Although I always heard that maglev was a real power hog, that it was quite inefficient…

    • That is true! I have a good example proving that. There were two initial proposals to build rapid transportation systems in China at the beginning of the 21st century, one was high-speed trains which were going to be improved based on the existing trains, the other one was to build maglev trains. After research and experiments, what is widely used in China now is high speed trains, which gain high speeds with the help of specialized railways and advanced locomotives and coaches .
