Metropia will redefine traffic

by Mark R

Some of you might remember that gigantic-enormous rail train that can go over two lanes of traffic, to hopefully be built in China.

This is another piece of concept technology called Metrotopia. That certainly sounds like the city of the future with this idea to beat traffic.

Picture a city where everyone drives around in a two-seater transport vehicle that has some sort of ball on the bottom that is perfectly balanced. Now, these transports are worth a posting in and of itself, but wait, there is more.

Just imagine if you could take this transport vehicle, and then drive it on a specially designed tram where it will dock with others. As the driver rests in the two-seat transport, the tram takes him or her to near where he or she is going. The driver can then drive the rest of the way and save on fuel, as the tram will also recharge the transport.

In other words, think of the transports as cars, but one that you can take on a bus with you.

Yes, this would be a Metro-utopia and it would definitely redefine traffic and transport as we know it. Yeah, this is up there with Minority Report as far as tech advancements are concerned.

Looks a lot like the hover chairs and trams in the movie “Wall-E”
