    i totally like the idea of cars that drive them self though or some sort of bus taxi...on a track or computerized gps type system or those horizontal escalator type sidewalks ya know...but they should move quicker that could be cool.

    I was kind of concerned about all the variables in life, and that we would need to be able to control the cars reactions to certain events.

    What if a dinosaur suddenly comes out of a forest and we can't move, other than on the magnetized track?

    well in that case let's hope we have flying cars...i don't wanna cram on some train with the whole city.

    Actually maybe the cars being lifted by the magnets would be very useful in such a case.

    We could control the power to be higher than the dinosaur! But then the object would be blocking our source of repelling energy....let's just hope we don't have random dinosaurs running around.

    yeah we gotta find a way to use these magnets i'm thinking...could they be used for monorails...are they used for monorails? maybe the cities need a lot more monorails...high ones...in case of a dinosaur attack.

    hehe I should create dinosaurs to give even more purpose to magnetic monorails!

    But seriously, I think there is some undiscovered or only slightly scratched at idea involving magnets that is just waiting to make millions or billions.

    the problem would be making magnetic fields in regions you wanted them (such as bellow the table for lift) but not significant in other regions. What about introducing systems of faraday cages on top of your hueg magnetic sheet so you have "safe regions" for metal objects?

    i think you're right...magnets are seriously cool crazy things...have you ever heard of kids who accidentally swallowed both sides of one and they twist their organs all up...that's some crazy powerful shit. we gotta think of something cool to do with em.

    I haven't heard of that, but on some of the websites for "industrial" magnets I saw, it talked about kids picking up these five pound magnets and having it attract the other one, consequentially crushing the childs hand.

    That is a good idea. I was also hoping for maybe the equiptment that was used to be a mix of something strong and durable that wouldn't fly and attack the system. But we all know how fun it would be to have objects flying at us while we drive. Or fly.

    Maglev is really not a new concept and the Shikensen is probably the most famous example of it's application.

    Edit: I just remembered an episode of the Simpsons where a maglev train was built in Springfield. It was solar powered and I think they had Leonard Nimoy cameo in it. That episode was entertaining.
