Heathrow airport gets futuristic driverless taxi
Some may call them very creepy, maybe because they see too many movies but I think this is the best and I say screw the cab drivers at the airport because they truly suck and these cab pods are just amazing! They are fast, accident free, no traffic jams and use much thinner roads and to top that it does not even have that annoying driver! These personal rapid transport vehicles were unveiled at the Science Museum in London will take airport goers on a special narrow road from Heathrow’s Terminal 5 to the various parking lots. Passengers have to use the touch screen to type their destination, press a start button and the battery-powered vehicle will take you to your destination at a speed of 25 miles an hour.
