Eco Factor: This kind of concept intends to move you across the globe without leaving any carbon footprint.
With the world turning into a global village, millions of folks travel across the globe primarily to boost trade and economy. However, in doing so, we have victimized our environment by leaving behind non-reversible carbon footprints. Most of us are aware of the fact that the aviation industry has been among the largest contributor to push the graph of global warming higher. Does that mean that we should curb our progress and stay where we are? Designer Robert Nightingale differs, and has come up with an eco-friendly alternative concept called Environment. Zooming at an equivalent high-speed, this avant-garde eco-vehicle looks like a fine-tuned bullet train. Exceptionally designed to render innovative digital as well as factual experience, this kind of mode of transport provides the travelers with an environment conducive for work as well as leisure.
Train capsule concept is the result when creativity and technology meets, the designer come up with something that is shown in this picture. This is a futuristic train with unique and stylish seating arrangements. There are individual capsules where one person can sit comfortably for one or two hours but if you are going for a long journey, I doubt whether one can stand and roam inside this train and also there are 4 people lounge seating. Even though the capacity of this train to carry people is very less as compared to other trains but its design, graphic work and features like interaction with users, entertainment, significant data collection and customizable interface makes it unique train capsule concept.
The French TGV, the world’s fastest conventional train, has reached a top speed of 574km/h. By 2025 commuters on a “maglev” line between Tokyo and Nagoya will be hurtling along at incredible speeds of up to 581km/h. A “magnetically levitating” train floats about 10mm above its guideway on a magnetic field and has low maintenance costs. They will travel the 290km in just 40 minutes. The next step is a Tokyo-Osaka trip of 480km in one hour. Rail officials say as many as 200,000 passengers a day could make the journey. The Japanese technology has been in the pipeline since the 1960s, with a major publically viewable 20km test track to the west of Tokyo since 1997.
