Cool idea. Maybe if they could add a second rail, they could just use two sets of wheels to save on the expensive gyroscopic mechanism. And maybe have them long and thin rather than round, maybe separate carriages even, so that people could get on and off at multiple points simultaneously, and capacity could be expanded as needed. If these sets of rails could somehow be set up to connect all major towns and cities, it would be ideal.

Nothing could possibly go wrong.

Single track so can use going one way only.

On the beach, really? I’m sure all municipalities will be jumping to have an eye sore on their beaches. There was even a spot where the track was level to the ground. Imagine after a storm that the track can be covered. Kids could be lying on the track.

When it goes under the bridges, it lowers. That wouldn’t work if there’s a semi-truck nearby. If that would work all the time, then why not keep it lowered. Obviously it wouldn’t. Depending on the spacing of tall vehicles around you and low bridges, you might just go the same speed as traffic anyway.

How much energy will those consume compared to a standard bus?
