Volkswagen hovering egg car promises a better futureby Dhiram Shah
Its time to dive again into the exciting, world changing and impractical world of concepts. This one comes straight from Volkswagen, it was actually an idea submitted by a user in a contest held by the german giant, but it impressed the bright minds at VW so much that they actually went ahead and made a video out of it. What we have here is a two seater hover pod looking like a Yoyo, it stays around 2 feet in the air and uses electromagnetic road networks to move around. The onboard sensors ensure you a safe ride inspite of lunatic drivers on the road. Instead of MagLev, a smart electric car with a range of 250 miles on a single fast charge of 60 minutes is what we want. Volkswagen are you listening?
