Honda's Video on Future Mobility

Not that many years ago, many of us thought that the future of transportation would look like the Jetsons TV show. The Jetson family flew around their futuristic community in gravity defying space cars. In this video, Honda appears to be challenging us to really think about what mobility will mean in the future. "Mobility" can be a multi-faceted issue. Getting from one place to another is only part of it. The ability to communicate world wide via internet with portable devices, coupled with the increasing cost to society for burning fossil fuels, not to mention the potential of electric vehicles, magnetic levitation and hydrogen fuel technology, all make the issue of mobility much more complex today than it was 20 years ago. This video speculates on everything from walking to driverless public transports.
