String Transport Shown in a Movie?

String Transport Shown in a Movie?

22 April 2022

The line between fiction and reality is sometimes very thin – on occasions works of art are prophetic, but often it is scientific ideas that inspire creative people. This topic is the subject of an article that has recently appeared in the journal “Popular Mechanics”.

In the Hollywood movie “The Island”, a kind of transport was shown that is very reminiscent of the one invented by the author of string technologies. The film shows its widespread use in the city. In one of the episodes, you can see a scene that is very similar to string transport in action. The fantastic movie itself was released in 2005, and ten years after that, the developer company demonstrated that all this is quite real by presenting the first sample of the rolling stock to the public.

But do not forget that more than 40 years ago the general designer proposed the world the idea of the “second level” transport having published his developments and illustrations in popular science journals of those years.

Have the filmmakers decided to use them?

The answer to this question is no longer so important. The main thing is that today the company, which has passed to the “business” stage, already offers the world its complex transport and infrastructure solutions.

In addition to string transport, there are several technologies shown in films over the years, which have also become a reality today: a flying car, a jetpack, a hoverboard, smart sneakers, an exoskeleton, etc. If you are interested in learning more about them, we suggest that you familiarize yourself with the publication of the string technologies developer.
