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?
