One of the most exciting things about living in this age is that many Sci-Fi fantasies of the 70s and 80s are coming to life. In this article, we will talk about the upcoming transportation technologies which were once just a dream.
Imagine travelling from city to city at an unbelievable speed. Hyperloop was once just an idea of a crazy billionaire. But testing has already started and we could see these in reality in the next 5-10 years.
- Flying jet suits
Ever wanted to fly around like Ironman? If you are rich, you can do it right now. The rest of us will have to wait a couple of years before these cool jet packs become affordable. Learning them is super easy and they don’t need any kind of license in most countries. They are already on sale in some high-end stores in the UK, and they cost close to half a million dollars.
- Flying cars
Tired of your daily traffic commute? Flying cars are already in development and could be sold like road cars in the next 10 years. The only hope is that the sky traffic should not become as heavy as the road traffic. Many flying cars concepts are in the prototype stage and in about five years, you can expect to see them in showrooms.
- Self-driving cars
Of all the things in this list, Autonomous vehicles will probably be the first one to hit the market. Many self-driving car concepts are currently on road trial. The next step is miniaturisation and mass production. Once that is accomplished, you need not worry about getting a driver for your car. Uber is already excited about the concept of self-driving taxis. Google and Tesla are also in advanced stages of the technology.
The future is very exciting, and it will feel like we are living a dream.
