The group believes that in 100 years we will have driverless cars, trains and planes all connected up in a congestion-free network that will be so efficient it won’t be necessary to own a vehicle. They also believe travel is going to speed up significantly, with flights from London to New York in just one hour. And, if you’re bored of travelling on earth, you could always pop up to a space hotel for a mini break!
Research Supervisor, Tom Ford says, “One change I think we will see in plane travel is the addition of a new segment, in terms of ultrafast sub-orbital planes which go sufficiently far out of the atmosphere they can go much faster. People are projecting travel from the UK to Australia in as little as two hours.”
Every day for the next week we will be releasing the next Sharp workshop in the series. Stay tuned on Monday for Energy…
