To address the increasing verticality of urban centers and the zero impact mentality, Natalie Bonebrake started by raising the transport of the terrain thus removing its footprint. The vehicle hangs from a magnetic levitation track; this removes the need for the vehicle to have an on-board power source eliminating localized emissions, except for the electromagnetic radiation and dramatically lightening the vehicle. There is also an option for a drive train for tracking use.
Once in the pod, a destination is entered and the rail system powers the pod through the city along the appropriate route. This allows the users the comfort of taxi or subway but without all the waiting and expensive fairs.Alone the pod allows the users to travel effortlessly through the city, but once connected to the chassis it becomes even more dynamic! This system allows the user to enjoy the freedom of having a car without all the responsibilities of having a car!
