Am I the only one or does it seem a bit ODD that in the World of Tomorrowland the future we will be driving noisy smelly poluting gas guzzling cars sponsored by an oil company?!
Maybe it would be possible to IMAGINEER a cool futuristic looking vehicle that oh I dont know runs on maybe electricity, maybe powered by areas of the track that might be lit up from below with a green arrow patter using electroluminescent panels and use electromagnetic induction to charge the batteries like the vehicles in the energy pavillion at epcot, this way there would be no need either for a barrier in the middle of the road, you will be able to steer but if you steer too far off the wire embeded in the road it will correct or limit the steering and has cool features like neat EL lighting and sound efx maybe even an onboard simulated computer nav voice, and runs around a road that oh I dont know maybe has slightly scaled down futuristic looking buildings with lights, sound and animation to drive by? All these would also be visible and heard from the monorail and any new ride using the peoplemover track and really make that are of Tomorrowland come alive again.
And all this could be solar powered as suggested as for the cost of this thats what corporate sponsorship is for, they did it at Universal where they have many banks of solar panels, in fact why isnt all of tomorrowland's roofs covered in corp sponsored panels?!
Just a thought....
