Last month, we asked you to submit your designs for advanced automobiles. Unsurprisingly, we received a ton of amazing, innovative, creative ideas. We can’t wait to see you build these in the real world.
The Flying Bicycle
The flying bicycle is powered by a solar cell that charges on sunny days so on cloudy days it can still fly. The bicycle uses radar so as not to hit anything. It is made of lightweight aluminum and is in an aerodynamics hape. The pedals are connected to the motor to help with takeoff. The steering wheel helps the driver redirect the motor to turn. When the driver pushes a button a parachute emerges out and the driver holds onto the bicycle while he floats down. —Stacy Eggers, North Carolina
The transportation of the future has a small sphere wheel on the front that would be for landing and stability. The other ones help it fly with the propeller. It’s like a rocket, plane, helicopter, and car put together. When it takes off jets eject out of the bottom to help keep it up. The wheels flip up and let it glide and the propeller starts spinning. For it to go into space it would have to be titanium. Also, the wheels would go out for stability and the jets would go to the back of the vehicle for it to blast off. It would possibly be able to go to Mars. —Cooper Harris, Arkansas
MM Skymobile 2000
Mosur Motors (MM) Skymobile 2000 is the first of the few electric aircar able to achieve vertical liftoff for flight and operate on efficiently on land. The car also can charge itself while in motion using wind and solar energy. With a Carbon fiber body and groundbreaking aerodynamics the Skymobile 2000 can power to a record-breaking speed of 385 m.p.h. on land. The Skymobile 2000 also can fly as fast as a commercial airliner (~550 m.p.h.), thanks to electric jet propulsion. The electric propellers collapse when not in use for vertical takeoff and landing. — Arjun Mosur, Arizona
These days cars run on gas and electricity. Gas is bad for the environment and costs a lot of money. Electricity is fine for the environment but still costs money. I think air cars will be the future vehicle. They will use air and be eco-friendly. The air car will be designed in a way that it will have vents all over the sides of the car collecting air. When the car turns on it will shoot the air into a built-in air compressor, making the car move. The benefits of air cars are that they cost less money so more people can buy them. It will also be smaller so people can get from place to place faster in traffic. It will cause no pollution so people can stay healthier. It will also have space to hold cargo. —Ritvik Jain, Virginia
The Fast Track Car
If I were to make an alternative for the cars we use today, it would be very different than the cars we have today. They would be called Fast Track Cars. It would look like a car but come in many different sizes. They would fit from two to ten people. It would go 455 miles an hour at the most. It will take about 90 minutes to go 500 miles. It normally takes around 8 hours. It would be more convenient and easy. Imagine not having to wake up so early to go to school, work, or weekend activities. It would not be self-driving but, it will brake itself if it is about to come in contact with something. These include other vehicles, guard rails, pedestrians, and trees. The car would also run off electric that lasts as long as the gasoline we put in our cars. It would take less than two hours to charge. If we use less gasoline, the air will be less polluted, global warming will slow down, and our atmosphere will stop breaking down. I hope this is a form of transportation that will be an alternative to cars some day. It will be great for the people of the world and the Earth, and people will still be here many years in the future. —Mary Ellen Bridges, North Carolina
Levi’s Amazing Future-Mobile!
My future transport is a flying car. The car would help because it would reduce ground traffic and air pollution. It would do this because with less normal cars and more flying cars ground traffic would reduce. Also since the flying cars are solar-powered air pollution would lessen. —Levi Smith, North Carolina
Have you ever dreamed of getting across the world in minutes? Or have you ever been late to a party because your car was slow?
If you have you are not alone. That is why I have thought up a new vehicle.
My vehicle would be a series of self driving tubes so that you could get across the world in minutes. All you would have to do is enter the tube, enter where you want to go, and the vehicle will take you there at incredible speeds.
This would not only reduce wait times, but increase safety. Face the fact, if you are somewhere where everyone is going to the same place at the same speed, it is safer.
I know what you are thinking. How will I fuel this incredible machine? Well, right now this world has a problem. The problem is called pollution.
My way of fuel could be finding how to take the energy from plastic and fuel my machine with the energy. Now I have solved the problem of travel times, safety, and plastic pollution with my one vehicle. —Emma Lisborg, Georgia
Self-Driving Land, Air, and Sea Vehicle
This vehicle has numerous different functions. It can automatically add destinations to your existing route (such as our charge station for its waterproof battery). It also displays interactive holograms on the windshield for speed, destination, and a rough estimate for time until recharge is necessary. One of its most important features, the manual override switch, allows the user full control when used (such as in an emergency). In the middle, it has a large kitchen with a robot to make food behind a glass pane. It has hidden propellers that emerge when going into Water Mode. If you wish to drive it on a road, there is no need for wheels as it uses a magnetic field to levitate above the ground, utilizing hidden magnets on public roads. It has an ever-running solar-powered jet engine mostly used for speed boosts and flight.
