Relics of the great 60's era "moon-base, personal-robot, flying-car" engineering mindset are always a great find. Now add in French styling and video quality commensurate with only the finest early Japanese Godzilla films, and well... you've really got something.

I mean, really, how can one follow that up? I don't have much to say about this, but I just had to pass it along. The Aerotrain was a project of French engineering that was supposed to provide the ease and speed of a maglev train without the expensive, magnetic tracks. It was not pursued when TGV came along which could offer relatively high speed rail service without the need to build new tracks. But it worked! And it did more than just work. It looked pretty darn good doing it!
