The Human Monorail:A New Way To Get Around
Introducing the Shweeb! Shweeb….what an interesting word. I was a bit perplexed at first, a schweeb is described as the crystaly buds from a cannibus plant. That is not what we are talking about though, this is a different kind of high here.
The Shweeb is the world’s first human monorail, located in Rotorua, New Zealand. It’s a sort of petal yourself aerodynamic capsule that gets you from point a to point b along interconnected rails. At present, the Shweeb is used as more of an amusement or racing track, however developers are striving to make shweebing the newest form of transportation. The tail end of the project would create an inexpensive and energy efficient mode of urban transit, complete with zero carbon emissions.
The fastest time has been recorded as 1 minute for a 600 meter race. Think you can beat that? Shweeb now!
