    This is a very exciting time, between this, autonomous semis, and self-driving tesla cars, (combined with Uber and autonomous car sharing concepts), transportation as we know it is very likely to change significantly very soon.

    Reveal may be a big word, @JWardell ... 'CAD preview' comes to mind... ;)
    Although in this case, with imagination, this does indeed look like a 'peoplemover' on sleds, in this case possibly exclusively designed to be used for high speed transport in the not so Boring tunnels exclusively, not in normal streets... :rainbow::rainbow:

    I mean, if you think about it, it's a whole vehicle made entirely of Tesla Glass.
    I really wish I could somehow get in on the ground floor of any of Elon's concepts.
