What does the future of high-speed intercontinental transport look like? It could be an efficient, green and comfortable maglev train averaging 800 km/h.
In a future where sustainability will be built into everything, which concepts could revolutionise long-distance transport as we know it?
Our solution is the Aeroslider concept for future transportation. A high-speed terrestrial yet rail-less passenger system connecting the most populous cities on the European, African and Asian continents. With an expected cruising speed at 800 km/h, the concept is designed to be a futuristic intercontinental travel solution.
The Aeroslider is equipped with linear magnets that propel it through a connected system of electromagnetic portals. Portal loops can be powered by localized energy sources. The incorporation of helium reservoirs within the capsule reduces the effective weight by about 10%, reducing the energy necessary for its propulsion.
The system is designed for comfortable long-distance travel by combining sitting spaces with private cabins; incorporating a running track, open plaza area, restaurant, bars, gyms and multi-purpose rooms which can accommodate meetings and work when commuting.

The single-track system is designed to reduce construction costs and integrate with existing infrastructure in urban areas. Additionally, it puts a minimal strain on any environment with the loops allowing unobtrusive passage above irregular terrain, rivers and animal crossings.
Of course, it’s easy to get excited about a technology that doesn’t actually exist. But I’d argue, it’s also okay. We need a world that’s inspired by sustainability, and Manyone has certainly created an object of inspiration.
