Welcome to the future of our world and see how we will travel around it in the years, decades, and centuries to come. This book looks at today's most advanced technology and shows how it may be used in the near future, then gives an informed guess at what transport in the distant future might be like. Futuristic concepts from the past show how some ideas succeed and some fail, from bullet trains to flying cars. The way we travel in the future will impact on our daily lives, from hopping to work by personal jet pack to circling the globe in supersonic flight. Discover how airships may be used again to transport cargo. Find out how jet packs and ducted fans may be used as personal transportation. Learn how future technology will affect airport security. Wonder at the antigravity machines of the distant future. Book jacket.
