Meet the flying train, a hybrid train and plane

image of hybrid train planeWhile Elon Musk is helping to combine hyperloops and space travel, the Russian architecture firm Dahir Insaat wants to build a hybrid train and plane that transports 2,000 people at a time.

The flying trains reach speeds up to 300mph, not much faster than the speediest train in the world, the 267 mph Shanghai Maglev. Even if it looks like a giant lego piece, most people would still rather ride in it than sit in traffic.

Furthermore, I wonder how we’ll look at any concept of transportation once SpaceX’s vision to fly people across the globe in 30 minutes becomes a reality.

Sometimes the adjacent trains zoom by so fast you can still see the other side, uninterrupted, just through two additional windows instead of one.

Commuting Hands-Free

Commuting is an essential part of your day. What you do on the way to work can make you happy and set you in rhythm or put you in a bad mood.

I love riding the train and having the option to blog, read, social network, listen to music, sleep, or do work all on my Smartphone. I used to drive to work and have to wake up an hour early to get any of these done. Driving sucks, and not just because of the traffic.

I’d walk everywhere if I could and not just for the extra exercise. Walking is meditation, an opportunity to think and notice the abstract. I also use that time to take a lot of pictures.

Time is always running. I’d rather spend it doing something productive while moving to my destination at the same time.
