How do you feel when you get stuck in the traffic jam? Have you ever fantasized about escaping to another space? An innovative solution to a better way for transportation has been proposed by NASA Space Act company skyTran: an autonomous, high-speed, elevated Personal Rapid Transportation system.

Thanks to skyTran, you could get from San Francisco to San Jose in 15 minutes, and from JFK to Midtown Manhattan in five minutes during rush hour. Users can book the vehicle with the smartphone, choose the start station and the destination, and then easily travel through the whole city, enjoying a nice view while managing time in a more efficient way.

Joyce Nabuurs: To me this question seems to be a logical next step in the emancipation movement of the past century. More and more women entered the workspace, but the responsibility for pregnancy and childrearing remained female.
