Future Tech: Innovations in Transportation
Futuristic transportation is a concept that has provided a constant source of fascination for scientists, designers and artists. Using a range of illustrations, original diagrams, photographs and historical explanations, Future Tech explores the key developments at the forefront of vehicular technology, ranging from current advancements, such as hydrogen cell cars to projects still in early stages of development, such as jet paks, flying trains and wave piercing catamarans. The technologies are examined thoroughly and their advantages and disadvantages clearly assessed.
Future Tech is a compilation of material which explores and defines the way the future is imagined in the present, and tries to answer that ever more pressing question of how we move forward.
