Change Trains At High Speeds Via Boarding Dock

A man by the name of Paul Priestman used his Industrial design skills when he conceived of two trains, running continuously, that would allow passengers to switch trains even while moving at high speeds.

I am sure we have all seen this in some movie, where a character jumps between two moving cars, trains, buses, what have you–the only difference with this concept is that this would be safe and not trigger a ton of adrenaline while you switch trains.

Chinese Grad Student Designs VW Hovercraft

21 year-old graduate student, Zhang Yuhan has designed a zero emissions hovercraft concept called the Aqua Volkswagen. The Xihua University Industrial Design grad student submitted it as a finalist contestant for the CDN China Car Awards (a design competition). The entrants were to create a “Chinese off-road vehicle” by Volkswagen with “go-anywhere” capabilities that would allow the vehicle to freely travel the untamed wilderness of the Chinese countryside.

The hovercraft does not produce any Carbon emissions and is supported by a cushion of air, allowing it to cross a wide range of surfaces such as; lakes, rivers, wetlands, dirt roads, snow and ice.
