I feel like George Jetson is moving to Michigan. I just read a Treehugger article
about a new magnetic train proposed for Michigan in a Detroit to Lansing run.
It will be a magnetic train powered by solar and hydrogen. Wow, the Jetsons
seemed so out there when we were younger but all those far fetched ideas are
becoming everyday reality; such as smart machines, exercise machines,
robotic household help, and the visual phone. We don’t have a talking dog
or fly to work yet but who knows, anything is possible.
The magnetic train system would be built along I96 expressway. It would
stop at local exits for commuters to get off and drive home or just have a
refreshment break from traveling. The rail would include fiber optic cables
for communication. All this is proposed to be built with private funds and
powered by hydrogen and solar power. I am not sure when this is supposed
to be started but the announcement alone is a glimpse into our future.
Transportation is changing and I am not surprised that Michigan will be at
the forefront of these significant changes.
Would you ride in a magnetic train if it were available to you?
