The general idea of a statewide mass transit system is a good one. It would be great to have an alternative to flying or driving, but obviously only if it is actually better than flying or driving.
One would think that ideas for efficient and cost-effective statewide mass transit and the resulting benefits would have already brought about a new age of utopian technology. Yet in many areas of life, things don’t seem to have changed all that much over the years, especially in the field of transportation.
We have previously featured articles on driverless cars, 3D Printer cars, and even the Hyperloop. ou might think we are obsessed with future technology… and you might be kind of right. It is pretty fascinating.
There is a wry Danish proverb that goes “It is difficult to make predictions, especially about the future.” However, people, being the way we are, will always be curious of what is to come.
When the movie Back to Future came out in the 80’s, it had flying cars as the standard mode of transport in the future. However, it incorrectly predicted that it would happen in 2015. The year has come and gone but we are still nowhere near having those. Read more.
There is this interesting article I just read on the CBC News website about the way advertisers can target drivers using Vehicle Recognition Technology. This technology recently rolled out in London with the campaign for the All-New Renault Mégane.
CBC Radio technology columnist Dan Misener reports: "If you're stopped at a traffic light near one of these billboards, the camera will capture an image of the front of your vehicle, and computer vision software will identify the type of car you're driving. And then, based on that information, the billboard will change to show you a message targeted to the kind of person the system thinks you are. The whole process only takes about one second."

The story starts with Hydrogen:
We're starting to see more automakers turn their attention to hydrogen-powered cars. Honda announced it would be selling its hydrogen-powered sedan, the Honda Clarity, in California by the end of 2016. Lexus showed off its hydrogen-powered LF-LC concept car at the Detroit Auto Show, and Audi showed off its hydrogen-powered concept car the h-tron quattro. And then there's Toyota, which has been working on hydrogen-powered cars for years and has sold Toyota Mirai.
All these developments beg the question: are hydrogen-powered cars better that traditional battery-powered vehicles?
With cars becoming more and more available for purchase online, it can be hard to decide whether you want to purchase your car over the Internet or go the standard route by visiting a dealership.
In today's world, you really can do a large portion of the car-buying process online or over the phone. Finding a car is easy through thousands of local listings, giving you the ability to narrow down your search and identify the exact car of your choosing.
You can search through new, used and certified pre-owned cars; you can sort by make, model, body style, trim level, engine size and even color. This saves a lot of time that used to be spent traveling from dealer to dealer looking for the car you want.
