(VIDEO) VW People's Car Project: the magnetic suspension vehicle (Hover Car)01 May 2012
Now that flying cars are beginning to emerge, imagination has no more limit ... Here is the magnetic levitation spherical vehicle!
The People's Car Project is an initiative launched by VW in China to design the new people's car, an open-source project where citizens can submit ideas to VW’s R&D in China.
This is the case of Jia Wang who thought of a solution for traffic congestion in the city of Chengdu with a small urban vehicle, spherical, connected that can be parked everywhere (even in the air!) with a simplified operation allowing everyone to take the wheel.
Starting from these basic concepts, VW’s engineers made this idea become true with an original vehicle using electromagnetic levitation -to provide freedom and comfort- but also safety oriented with distance sensors to avoid crashes.
