Futuristic business travel technology is here
The dream of a future with flying cars is still alive thanks to such innovative companies as Urban Aeronautics, AeroMobil, PAL-V, Moller International and Terrafugia. While most of these are just in the concept stages, there are a few working prototypes like the Volocopter, which was shown off at the 2018 CES. Just think – instead of sitting through rush-hour traffic on your way to work, you could be soaring through the sky as you listen to podcasts and burn your tongue on overpriced coffee that you bought from a surly robotic barista with lug nuts for gauges.
Hyperloop travel wouldn't just impact businesspeople who travel internationally – although it would be a tremendous advantage for them. It would also change the way people think about daily commutes. High-speed travel options would make it feasible to live on the beach in Miami and work in downtown Atlanta, and the commute would take about the same amount of time it currently takes to travel on the New York City subway from Queens to Manhattan.
