This week in manufacturing, we looked at an impossibly fast supersonic concept plane, underground autonomous freight transport and an airplane that's actually a boat. Take a look at this week's Manufacturing Minute Recap. 

A Radical Hypersonic Concept Plane

In this episode, a concept plane that can allegedly fly from New York to London in 11 minutes at Mach 24. Learn about how it would (or wouldn't) work here:

Autonomous Underground Cargo Carriers

In this episode, Switzerland's $3.4 billion solution to the freight traffic issue: an underground cargo highway. Watch the conceptual process here:

A German Flying Boat

In this episode, a German manufacturer's plan for a new version of low-flying, boat-like seaplanes. See it in action here: 

SO, WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Are these new technologies going to revolutionize the transportation industry? Are the concepts realistic, or are they too far-fetched to become reality?
