Personalized Backpack Transport System Will Get You Across Town

New, 8 comments

Remember that nutter from Bulgaria who wanted to string up wires across the city, and then everyone could ride their bikes along the wires, like acrobats? His next idea, via Inhabitat: "... Kolelinio goes a step further, making the efficient urban transport system accessible to anyone, even those with disabilities. Each person has their own backpack composed of a harness, a battery bag, and a light engine that runs on the Kolelinia wire mechanis....Wire trunk lines would shoot out to the outskirts and suburbs of the city where people can hop on anywhere, minimizing the need for cars, heavy roads and infrastructure and significantly reducing pollution." We'll probably accidentally hang ourselves on this thing, but good to see someone churning out ideas.
