Charge And Go
Between your Hoverbike, Puffin Personal Flight Vehicle and Flying Hovercraft, somewhere along the line, you lost your taste for public transportation. But in the city, you still need to get around sometimes. What to do, what to do? University of Applied Arts graduate Tony Weichselbraun has an idea: the BMW eSetta, a reimagined Isetta—the small, efficient, bubble-shaped microcar that took off in Europe just after World War II, when inexpensive, short-distance transportation was in high demand. But today’s version would not only replace the Isetta’s gasoline-powered motorcycle engine with a clean, electric motor, the “eSetta” would be part of a car sharing system where they’d be charged via induction stations, borrowed, and returned when you were finished with them. Slick, stylish and smart, the eSetta sure beats taking the bus.
