Merciless efficiency.

So it just drops people into it like a piece of ammo?

This means we're not far from seeing NON STOP TRAIN ACCIDENT CAUGHT ON TAPE videos all over LiveLeak.

Our subways don't have time to stop for you.

The prospect of seeing mind-shatteringly horrible accidents as a result of this gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling inside.

Hay Belly
That's exactly what I was thinking when I watched it. It's an awesome idea though if it works.

Whitewater5
actually this is very clever and not necessarily unsafe

"Citizens please board the person receptacle! Top scientists have declared it not nessecarily unsafe!"

Ok, but don't you have to wait for the thing that drops you into the thing to stop? So basically this entire system is just to create a subway that doesn't stop at stops where nobody is waiting, which is practically never.

SolRo
no, this system is so that a giant fucking train doesnt have to come to a complete stop every time a couple people want to get on or off.

god you're a mindless emo retard

baleen

Did you just call me "emo?" Is that the extent of your knowledge of the outside world? Holy shit, that guy is wearing pants with a 34 waistline, he must be emo!

kelpfoot
Making fun of emo is emo.

Getting offended about being called emo is even more emo.

baleen

I think calling people emo on comment boards is what fourteen year olds with no knowledge of anything outside of computer games and anime do. That's sort of what I associate the word with now.

The last time emo had a meaning outside of that was around 1993 when there were guys in my high school who started punk bands, but they wore cardigans and experimented with bisexuality.

Seeing as I am and never was either of those things, I'm hardly offended.

kelpfoot
Posting long explanations about what is and is not emo, thereby demonstrating alarming familiarity with the subject of emo, is even more emo than even more emo.

baleen
You are a jackass.

kelpfoot
While there's no denying that, I take comfort in knowing that at least I'm not emo.

biclops
I'm sorry kelpfoot, but that last comment made you emo.

Cube
"Emo" in my native language means a mother of an animal. A mother bird would be "lintuemo".

fermun
What would the mother of an emu be? A emuemo?

FatFatuousNation
What about the great grandmother of an black-eyeliner-wearing emo? Would we call that an emoemoemoemo or be more succinct and call it baleen?

Just kidding I wuv you baleen.

And the internet tease is called TickleMeEmo.

Don't they do this kind of stuff already in India, except they have older trains and you actually have to jump on.

Who wants to take bets on if this project will be completed before the Three Gorges Dam breaks?

I wonder when one of the inventors is going to realize that the occupants will be slammed against the back of the people-compartment as the train catches it.

Hopefully, they'll figure it out before the first test run.

So what the fuck is that massive train underneath carrying? Nothing?

Maggot Brain
It seems to me that this had more to do with disembarking.

The world is full of awesome. We need more trains in America.

The way this is depicted, only the last passenger car in line can be dropped off, right? Train passes station, picking up a passenger car and adding it to the front of the queue, while dropping off the car at back of the queue.

It seems to me that the only way you could control which station you'd get off at is if you could move backwards or forwards through the cars to get into the appropriate passenger car in the queue, and there doesn't seem to be a way to do that. The passenger cars don't link together; there is no passageway between them to permit access, and they don't even appear to be physically near each other as they ride on top of the train. Maybe the passengers go through the floor of the car somehow, down into the train itself, and up into the desired car?

Otherwise, it appears you'd be forced off the train along with everyone else who boarded that car with you, and that doesn't make sense. In real life, not everyone who gets on at the same embarkation point gets off at the same destination. So how the hell does this work?
stage
the passenger receptacle has stairs or something that go down to the main body of the train, so most of the people are in the big train that always moves.

If you want to get off at the next stop you move up the stairs into the receptacle that will be dropped off next.
