just like how mp3s have taken the joy/pain out of listening to an turntable, changing the way we drive our cars to magnetic non-touching cars or hovercraft types will take the joy out of driving.
imagining a world without tyres, steering feel, etc,etc is boring..
let cars remain cars..and maybe for crowded city commuting let the edisons/steve jobs come up with some new model..

I always thought Trikes have some potential, though I haven't come across any working models that can seat more than 2 comfortably. 15 Best Trikes We'll Need In The Green World Tomorrow - Ecofriend

This really blows the imagination off! And to think of somebody actually trying to implement it. BTW It really looks cool and futuristic!

This may become more practical in cities like Singapore, where most people live in certain well designated residential blocks (HDB flats?) and work in business districts areas. But even there people buy and own cars, where you can drive a maximum of 25kms across! That's the spirit of freedom, isn't it?
Need for freedom is the biggest deterrent to any such transport systems. And that clearly explains why America has more people traveling by cars than trains and bus.
