The Shweeb Human-Powered Monorail

We've written about the Schweeb before on this blog, but it's so neat, when this new vid surfaced, we knew we'd have to post again. Check out the future of mass transportation. You'll never want to take your boring old car to work again!

This looks like fun, and getting out of street traffic sounds nice. However I will not be strapping myself into the plastic bubble until they start talking about air conditioning.

That looks really cool, and I would love to try it. I worry about the braking issue, and being able to get out in an emergency. Without some sort of electronic monitoring system, is one person is going 10mph and someone smacks them from behind going 50mph, it might cause some issues. Also, what about people with small children? What about height issues? I wonder if the pedal length is adjustable. Very cool link though.

There really isn't enough freedom with these for bicyclists. I know that I prefer to bike to see the outdoors and take new routes to clear my mind and explore, it's not just about travel. There would also be too much human error for these to get going in the mass public. If one person crashes into another, the whole system would be down. Then,the people behind the crash would have to wait in their little pods for who knows how long. Maybe, if there are some technological aspects that keep things like this from happening it would work but otherwise it jut seems like a neat idea that won't really take off.
