Maglev is a transportation method that works on a special magnetic levitation technology. Instead of using wheels and axles, this method uses magnets to carry vehicles. In the area of personal maglev transportation, we can notice some amazing modern concepts coming up. Here, you may check out some of the personal maglev transportation concepts that have been emerging to revolutionize this world.
SkyTran personal maglev transport system
SkyTran is a company of NASA Space Act, and it has been working on a remarkable personal maglev transport concept that can be started in Israel, if trials are successful. Through this system, you may dream of traveling at least 20 feet above the ground while sitting in cars that can be operated using a Smartphone app. Power electromagnets are being used to produce the required thrust and lift. Two people can easily fit in a car and travel at a speed of around 40 miles per hour. If this system is rolled out commercially, then it can bring a huge change in the current transportation conditions in several countries.
MagLev Racer car
Developed by Grey Design, this personal maglev transport concept is for a futuristic racing car. The car has been designed amazingly while considering the principles of electromagnetic levitation and connect-ability holographic display technology. This vehicle can be propelled at an unbelievable speed of around 217 miles per hour, and it can significantly reduce the time to travel. In Convoy mode, this car can also be networked with other convoy cars. While it allows you to steer a wheel coming out of a dashboard logo, it also lets you have a 3D traffic view and do video messaging.
Designer Hossein Ghahramani has done an eco-friendly attempt by designing this personal maglev car concept called Cellogan. The compact and safe car can maintain very high speeds with low friction. With a curved body, this car looks like a computer mouse fitted with flexible rubber track wheels.
This zero-emission vehicle has been designed by Rui Gou to run on electromagnetic roads. Powered by magnets, this maglev transport concept is designed to be interactive with its rider. This virtual help can be used to drive more efficiently. However, the concept still seems challenging to be implemented on a large platform.
Mithos Electromagnetic Vehicle
This dream concept is the creation of Tiago Miguel Inacio who envisioned a stylish futuristic sports car and gave it the shape of Mithos Electromagnetic Vehicle. It is inspired by the BatMobile supercar, which almost every individual dreams to own. An unknown composite is used to create the crash-resistant body of this vehicle and it has a powerful 1.5 MW electric motor. Still, this concept seems to be dream-like as of now.
Several personal maglev transport concepts have started taking shape. While just a handful of ideas look practically promising, many concepts still seem distant from turning into a reality.
