A miniature car powered by electricity or solar power, stackable like a shopping cart, able to turn around by 360° and integrated into a network inside an eco-friendly city could soon become reality.
MIT eco-friendly project
The scientists and developers at the university have a pretty concise idea of how this eco-mobility project is to be put into practice. People inside the city would have the possibility to have a more convenient transportation option than busses, subways, trains and even conventional cars. The Green City Car is a clean car that is charged by power stations that are connected to a huge network or even by solar power with solar cells on their roof. As soon as the car is parked on one of those power stations it starts charging. The cars can also be stacked like shopping carts, thus saving space and leaving room for other cars. User cards can be used to personalize the configurations inside the car. One of the most interesting features is the ability of the car to turn by 360°. This gives the car and the driver an extreme flexibility and can change traffic systems significantly.
