China is testing ‘magnetic’ technology in flying cars. Flying cars are the dream of many people who are nothing more than a science fiction world depicted in movies and fictional videos. Being able to easily fly to work or a nearby location is not only fun. But also time-saving in this fast-paced world where people struggle with traffic jams every day.
But now the dream will soon come true and become even more real. Many who dream of traveling in a flying car shortly will be pleased to know about a related development from China. Where scientists have successfully attempted to levitate a car in the air. Yes! you heard me right.
An experiment conducted
During an experiment conducted by a group of Chinese researchers at Southwest Jiaotong University in Chengdu, Sichuan Province, China, they conducted a road test of a modified passenger car, using magnets to levitate the car in the air and drive the car. I ran it.
A Chinese journalist also shared the same video on Twitter, adding the caption: “During a maglev technical test, a 2.8-ton vehicle lifted 35mm from the road while driving on a highway in Jiangsu province in eastern China.
The video then went viral on social media. It has been viewed over 16,900 times with over 400 likes and multiple retweets. Many also used the comments section to share their thoughts on the new development.
According to China’s Xinhua News Agency, during the test about eight limousines used magnetic levitation technology. To levitate at least 35mm above the track, one of which reached speeds of 230km/h, surprised the crew.
Researchers revealed that tests were conducted to understand safety measures for high-speed travel, but that the successful use of maglev trains would reduce energy consumption and increase driving range.
