In Pictures: 12 cool future transportation concepts

From driverless cars to "never-stopping" trains, the way we get from point A to point B could be very different in the coming decades, most notably because of the new technologies that will be used

MACH HighSpeed Bus concept

Even if there are personalized self-driving vehicles, there will still be a need for public transportation, and that's where the high-speed bus designs come in. The MACH bus is aerodynamically designed to prevent wind friction and is powered by hydrogen fuel. It features a fluid suspension system to keep the ride nice and smooth. Because the bus will be traveling faster than most other vehicles, its safety features are enhanced, including having active and passive safety monitors and controls, meaning it's always alerting the driver of potential hazards. To keep it light, the bus has been built on a carbon-fiber chassis to maximize strength and minimize weight. And of course, it's red, just like the old-school London double-decker buses.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
