Volkswagen Hover CarBy Alan • Send This To A Friend
At the Beijing Auto Show, Volkswagen unveiled the Hover Car concept vehicle, a wheel-less pod that uses electromagnetic levitation to float just above the road. The idea came from a young design student named Wang Jia, whose dream is to help decongest the roadways in her hometown of Chengdu in China’s Sichuan province.
The Hover Car features a joystick for steering, auto-pilot function, voice commands and a safety sensor for collision avoidance. And because the Hover Car operates via magnetic fields, it uses no gas and has zero emissions.
