"This project envisions a distinct approach towards moving around the United States being also a revival of the act of traveling. Why traveling at high speed? Why having the final destiny always defined? And why always departing and arriving on a tight schedule? Nowadays, everything is set and everyone is always running around. It is time to reconsider the act of traveling and start enjoying it accordingly.
The Passing Cloud is an innovative and environmentally friendly method of transportation that doesn’t require expensive steel tracks or concrete highways. It is made of a series of spherical balloons that form the shape of a cloud. Its inner stainless steel structure is covered with heavy weight tensile nylon fabric. During the journey, it moves according to prevailing winds speed and direction at the time of travel. Since it moves with the wind, no wind is ever felt during the trip, offering the passengers a full “floating sensation”."
"Decotora" Trucks Shine in the Night
"What happens if a Japanese truck "dies and goes to heaven?" It becomes one of the glorified "Decotora" trucks! Decorated trucks, vans and semis glow in the night with the million lights, adding to the already incredibly bright Japanese urban landscape."

It’s always good to take a step back and look at the larger picture. I think we all know that humankind’s footprint on the planet is massive, but it’s still humbling to see it represented graphically.
In the above visual, lines of shipping, motor, and air routes are drawn in different colours. The urban areas that we inhabit are tiny pinpoints, yet our movements cover a very large percentage of the Earth’s surface. Europe sure likes to fly.
