Engineers have introduced the concept of “flying” trains

The aircraft can not be called environmentally friendly transport mode, but also the possibility of laying Railways are often limited. The original alternative to both types of transport introduced the company Manyone. The unusual concept proposes to use rails instead of the traditional futuristic system of magnetic rings through which the train will literally fly over any terrain.

According to the project developers, train AeroSlide will move through mounted on special brackets on the ring without touching the ground. It is assumed that a 250-meter part will be able to reach the speed of 800 kilometers per hour solely by electromagnetic fields. To reduce the weight of the train, the authors of the project propose to use the tanks with helium.

Manyone also calculated the theoretical route that will move AeroSlide. It passes through 41 cities in Europe, Asia and Africa. The company representatives said that in future such vehicles will be able to deliver passengers from Moscow to Shanghai in 10 hours.

While crossing the ocean, or at least to get from Vladivostok to Japan in this way is not yet possible. In addition, the system is not able to make sharp turns even if you replace the rings with ellipses, to deviate from the original direction will be only 4° for 2 km, which is comparable with the constraints of conventional high-speed trains.

The concept of internal equipment AeroSlide

Inside AeroSlide is planned to equip not only the private rooms for the passengers and open halls with treadmills, a restaurant and other amenities. Representatives Manyone noted that future travel on AeroSlide and similar types of transport can be cheaper than by plane, but to abandon the aircraft but did not succeed.
