A personal jetpack?

How about riding an electric skateboard to work? Or driving a car that folds up? Or a unicycle? Or my favorite – a personal jetpack that I could fly across town?

These are some of the new transportation devices that have emerged in recent years. Some have been presented at TED talks. Nine of them are mentioned on this TED blog.

BTW, Cortland is having their very own TEDx event scheduled for November 9. For details on how you can be a speaker or apply to be part of the audience check out the TEDx Cortland website.

    Ooh! I like the metro swing. So cool – and extra seats. Maybe we could do that to increase sitting space on Route 7.
