In 60 years, cars will be history.

Postby TalkingPoint » Sat May 07, 2005 9:00 am

In 60 years, cars will be history.

Will we use cars 60 years from now? Cars, motorcycles, trucks, buses... Will they all be ancient history? Maybe we'll be using airplanes to go shopping, or teletransporters, or... Who knows? Maybe we'll still be using the car. What do you think?

Well I hope we'll still be using cars since airplanes are too big. Even the personal airplanes are still big and they take up a lot of spots. I hope we'll be using the solar power or vegetable oils as fuel sources.

About flyng cars, or personal planes.. I hope not! Imagine that near of your house, is some highways in air.. that means that you don't have any privacy, even on 80 storey.

Without cars, you can't go to places that are far, places that require two or more hours driving by car. If you have to bike, when are you gonna get there? Next day, next week, or next month? Definitely count me out if we have to bike to those far places.

Ok. But only if you use hybridcar. and fuel made of vegetable oils. btw. diesel fuel, that is made of vegetable oil, is good for your car engine... well actually power is weaker, but greasing is much better.

It doesn't matter that cars will be history or not, because I think human will find another vehicle. It all depends on the power we used.

In other words, if the power that cars used will run out in the future, human must find another kind of "cars".

Yes, totally agree with you right there. Right now, Vietnam still has a lot of motobikes and not yet many cars like other Western countries. I hope we'll get improved soon.

P/S: My English is not very good. If there are some mistakes, please forgive me. Thanks! ;) I want to make friends with all of U.Write to me if U have free time.( I am Vietnamese and am 17 years old )

Well, using public transportation such as buses, subways, trains and stuff is nice, but not as nice as when you need to go to places as a family trip. It's nicer when you have your own personal space and moments.
By the way, your english is good. Hope to see more of your post. ;)

I think cars will not be history in 60 years. I want to illustrate one reason, in china, bicycle beeing used for a long time, for now, cars becomes more and more, traffic becomes more seriously day by day, so a lot of people want to ride to work, its all because of heavy traffic.
And i also wonder is it possible for us to be in the office by airoplane?

Hoho, It sounds alittle bit of crazy. I think people still use car for transportation. How about the energy? Maybe 60 years is a long time enough for people to exploit totally geothermal energy, and no more. People 'll use solar energy or they can find another energy to replace oil, It'll be big problem.
We can't use airplane to fly around a narrow city. Airplane is too big.
Thanks.
MTV i like most wanted

maybe at that time.we won't need to transport from one place to another by dealing with a thing,business,entertainment and so forth.coz the world wide net is too sophiscated to help us to complish everything at home.
as a result,car will be in the museum and offer the children to pick up knowledge about ancient transportation tools!

Some you may from work from home, but some you can’t. Like farmers, you can’t bring your farm into your house. :roll:

Also police enforcements, chefs, people in entertainment, and so on.
