5 Cool Transportation Alternatives To Walking Or Car

A lot of the things are getting automated. Transportation is getting an upgrade with autonomous buses, trucks, and cars. And also personal transportation has gotten an upgrade recently. In the last couple of years, new devices have been invented for transporting one person at a time. It used to be that the bicycle was the ultimate way to get around. And also skateboard and rollerblades. These new inventions are electricity powered instead of human power and go a lot faster with less effort.

The less effort part for these devices, while great for transporting over long distances, can also have a major negative effect as was “predicted” in the movie Wall-E
