Future Car - Powered By Magnets?
When it comes to alternative energies, so many forget the power of magnets. However, for Harsha Vardhan, magnets prove to be the secret behind the newest design for transportation: the Transporter TW. This electric vehicle is propelled by magnetic fields, but what benefits can driver expect? Apparently, according to Vardhan, the resulting ride would be whisper-quiet, incredibly smooth, and of course completely green.
In the picture above, notice the two large wheels. These are filled with a superconducting fluid, generating a constantly-shifting magnetic field that works to turn the wheels. These wheels then rotate around a small back-entry cockpit, complete with a swivel chair and a steering mechanism that looks incredibly futuristic.
Though this concept car doesn't seem to be in the works just yet, it is exciting to see alternative energies taking the forefront in the development of new technologies that can make getting around, faster, cleaner, and more efficient. After all – what's cooler than riding around on magnets?
