World of Light Travel Concept: So Slick It Makes Star Trek Look Backwards

[vimeo][/vimeo]You gotta’ hand it to the Swedish team behind this World of Light concept video. While other people think about cool new designs for suitcases, these folks are thinking about light travel, man. Okay fine, no-one really knows that means, but the vision of the future presented in the video sure looks cool.

But beyond the far-out visions of what travel might be like in the future, the video puts forward some really interesting ideas. Rather than heading to the airport, you just go to a ‘hotel’ that happens to have a state-of-the-art tech that will launch you into space.

You then enter ‘pods’ for two that shoot you into space, giving you the greatest view you’ll ever see, before descending in a shaft of light (with angels singing?) and arriving at your destination.Users of this fictional service will also wear biometric, genetically matched suits that will allow for checking-in is a thing of past.

Though it’s obviously a very ‘out-there’ idea, it certainly displays a great deal of foresight. And hey, anything that means not lining up at the airport for hours on end? That’s gotta’ be a good thing.
