Sitting amidst a sea of cars in bumper-to-bumper traffic on an endless expresswa¬y, have you ever daydreamed about your car taking off and flying over the road? Imagine if you could just flip a switch and unshackle yourself from the asphalt! Traffic jams are the bane of any commuter. Many of us spend an hour or so stuck in traffic every week. The growing population is partly to blame for our congested roads, but the main problem is that we are not expanding our transportation systems fast enough to meet ever increasing demands. One solution is to create a new type of transportation that doesn't rely on roads, which could one day make traffic jams a 20th century relic. To do this, we must look to the sky. Humanity has come a long way from traveling by horse, but when we consider the future of transportation in cities, too many of us are still stuck in the 18th century. We still envision our streets full of four-wheel chariots (minus the horses), and our future as relying on cars or car-like vehicles, because that’s all we know. And since traffic is rampant in the Philippines I envision having cars that will become much, much smaller; three-wheeled electric vehicles which resemble an enclosed motorcycle and fit only a driver and perhaps a small passenger. In that way it lessens the congestion and problem in traffic. In the next decades, bikes will still be a big part of how we move around urban areas. But while many people will continue to use bikes for health reasons, new technologies may overtake them, offering better ways to zip short distances inside cities. Much less cumbersome than a bicycle, scooter or Segway, these seated one-passenger devices take up roughly the space as a person. Without requiring handlebars or parking spaces, they’ll run on sidewalks, paved pedestrian areas and bike lanes. A compact electric device with self-balancing technology and designed so that riders could maintain eye-level interactions with other people. Unlike a bike or scooter, these devices leave a rider’s hands free to move, so she can do something else while she travels. Active transportation — devices that enhance our natural abilities, rather than restrict them will be an important part of the future. And lastly since people nowadays are two busy with their lives I envision that transport won’t just be about moving us around; it will be about moving our stuff, too. We can deny the fact that many people use cars because they need to haul groceries, work supplies or other stuff. In the future, we’ll use small wheeled robots that can follow us everywhere. We’ll be able to program these rolling helpers to move autonomously, picking up and dropping off things for us all by themselves.
