Chicago is soon to be the host of a new futuristic mode of transportation -- flying cable cars. The project, titled 'The Skyline,' will be used to connect the city's tourist attractions. It is likely that this futuristic mode of transport will become an attraction for both city locals and tourists alike. The "transparent pods" boast a crystalline exterior that makes them look like ornaments in the sky, working to make the city more beautiful while also providing a useful function.

Designed by Marks Barfield Architects and Davis Brody Bond, the flying cable cars will transport people through a loop, connecting Chicago's Navy Pier, the "Lakefront,", the "Riverwalk" and its downtown district. Once approved for building, the environmentally friendly flying cable cars will give people the chance to view Chicago from an entirely fresh perspective and likely encourage economic growth through the implementation of this one of a kind attraction.
