Wow! This is so coool!!! Is this the future of transportation. Guess it will take another 25 years before we Indians start having these luxuries…
Nope, this thing isn’t photoshop. Though it has an uncanny similarity to the cool mobile vehicle used by Tom Cruise in Speilberg’s Minority Report, this thing is already in the process of getting implemented. Check out the pictures below for the construction snaps. To actually experience this… maybe you should visit London Heathrow Airport sometime during the fall of 2008.
Till then, check out their website @ http://www.atsltd.co.uk/
ULTra is a battery-driven, 100-mpg-equivalent, elevated personal rapid transit system with many four-person vehicles. First deployment is scheduled for London Heathrow Airport in Spring 2009, to serve Heathrow’s new Terminal 5. Working as circulator transit for office parks, airports, universities, and other major activity centers, ULTra is faster than a car. In these applications, ULTra makes carpooling and conventional transit more effective, by solving the “last mile problem.”
Here are some snaps of the cool thing!!!
Really cool extension. They have only one style so far. But, even that one looks coool!! B) There has been many other extensions in the past that allowed you to apply skins to Gmail and add other cool stuff to Gmail. But, this extension is the only one where I really found the designs like-able and complete. What’s more? This extension also works its magic in GCalendar!!!
Google Redesigned is a Mozilla Firefox extension designed by Globex Designs that aims to fully redesign the look and feel of popular Google services. This is achieved with Cascading StyleSheet (CSS) files which are loaded on the client’s browser. The extension simplifies the use of these styles by providing auto-updates, easy management and notifications of changes. You can also download and use the styles individually by going to their respective pages.
Google Redesigned originally started as a single CSS file which tried to redesign Google‘s Gmail service. It has since grown to incorporate other various Google services and pages. Previously users of these styles would have to rely on other extensions such as Stylish, Greasemonkey or Web Developer to load these styles onto their browser which caused problems with updates, bug submission and version tracking. The Google Redesigned extension aims to solve all those problems by offering the popular Globex Designs styles in a single, self-updating extension.
Google Redesigned is built for Mozilla based browsers (Firefox, Flock, IceWeasel, and such). Users using other browsers will not be to install the extension. Firefox 3 and Flock 2 are highly recommended as certain styles will not work correctly on older versions of the Gecko engine. As well the Firefox 3 engine provides much faster performance for handling these styles.
This is an open source project, which means we welcome all suggestions, comments and bug reports. You can submit your feedback at the Google Redesigned Forums. The Extension and all the Google Redesigns styles are licensed under the GPL license.
