Volkswagen held a competition for input into revolutionary auto design. What you will see is the winning design from a girl in China - she looks to be about 16. This not only shows her amazing creativity, but it's also a strong indication of the competition the western world can expect from China in the decades ahead. They will be our next world power for sure. Either way, this is amazing! Wonder what other parts of the world this could work in.

Here's another thread on it.

Really a cool find though, glad you shared it! I forgot all about it. I think Johnny Anonymous once said that he was pissed there weren't flying cars yet, and I am inclined to agree. Mr. Anonymous probably wasn't that crass though. Domo is crass, Johnny is class.

That looks fake to me, but if it ever does become real, I WANT ONE!

If that had been an American commercial we wouldn't have known whether it was for Jeans, Skittles, Budweiser, or VW until the very end...

In other words I enjoyed it, thanks for posting

The design is real, but the car depicted in the video is not truly levitating... not yet, anyway.

As depicted in a video simulation, the Hover Car is a puck-shaped vehicle that rides on edge, scooting through narrow Chinese back streets like a Roomba vacuum cleaner.


NYTimes Source

But I love the concept.

From a Forbes article...this guy is right!


Contrast Detroit to Beijing and you see how wacky early-stage capitalism can be. Volkswagen’s People’s Car site started soliciting ideas for the future of automobiles from the Chinese public last year. To date, they have received more than 119,000 ideas and 33 million hits. The Hover Car was one of three finalists in the competition, but the popularity of the campaign has led the company to extend it indefinitely. The win here is not just the ideas generated, but the engagement of consumers with the brand. VW may never release a puck shaped floating car, but the Chinese are more likely to buy whatever the company produces because they were asked to dream of it.

Here’s a radical idea, maybe American car companies should be asking, too.


I concur!!

I doubt it will ever happen, at least not with this type of design. The entire infrastructure would need to be changed and the safety risks would be astronomical. Imagine if one got bumped into at speed, knocking it off the magnetic road. It would zoom fast and far before friction and gravity could slow it down.

For now you will all have to wait until I decide it's time to unveil the perfect personal transportation device (I call it the PTD) that my genius created (I keep him locked in the basement). It's good to have a pet genius.

Right we all should have know that when they said it works by interacting with minerals in the ground (which could never work) and then it takes a high bridge.

IT would be the cheapest car on the planet, if you go with the idea.

Especially if it was to have a top speed similar to the Maglev -- 430 km/h.
I'm also having fun picturing one reaching escape velocity....

Always remember to have your pets spayed or neutered.

This one's legit, with a little more Star Wars speeder potential than a carplane.
