Chinese Train Concept.wmv

Narrator:- Bikash Debnath
(The video has been added twice for clear understanding...)
AMAZING : Chinese Concept - The train that never stops at a station:

A brilliant new Chinese train innovation - get on & off the bullet
train without the train stopping. VERY COOL CONCEPT !

No time is wasted. The bullet train is moving all the time. If there
are 30 stations between Beijing and Guangzhou, just stopping and
accelerating again at each station will waste both energy and time.

A mere 5 min stop per station (elderly passengers cannot be hurried)
will result in a total loss of 5 min x 30 stations or 2.5 hours of
train journey time!

How it works (view the movie - in mandarin though!):

1. For those who are boarding the train : The passengers at a station
embarks onto to a connector cabin way before the train even arrives at
the station. When the train arrives, it will not stop at all. It just
slows down to pick up the connector cabin which will move with the train
on the roof of the train.

While the train is still moving away from the station, those passengers
will board the train from the connector cabin mounted on the train's
roof. After fully unloading all its passengers, the cabin connector
cabin will be moved to the back of the train so that the next batch of
outgoing passengers who want to alight at the next station will board
the connector cabin at the rear of the train roof.

2. For those who are getting off: As stated after fully unloading all
its passengers, the cabin connector cabin will be moved to the back of
the train so that the next batch of outgoing passengers who want to
alight at the next station will board the connector cabin at the rear of
the train roof. When the train arrives at the next station, it will
simply drop the whole connector cabin at the station itself and leave it
behind at the station. The outgoing passengers can take their own time
to disembark at the station while the train had already left. At the
same time, the train will pick up the incoming embarking passengers on
another connector cabin in the front part of the train's roof. So the
train will always drop one connector cabin at the rear of its roof and
pick up a new connector cabin in the front part of the train's roof at
each station.

Innovation?

Snowbird, le vélo des airs

Une équipe d'étudiants de Toronto vient de réussir un exploit en faisant voler un homme à bord d'un ornithoptère ! Un engin volant à ailes battantes très inspiré des oiseaux, qui n'utilise que la seule force musculaire de son pilote. Plus écologique tu meurs !

Moving Platforms

Moving Platforms is a completely inter-connected rail infrastructure where local trams connect to a network of non-stop high speed trains enabling passengers to travel from their local stop to a local address at their destination (even in another country) without getting off a train.
