This futuristic train has been designed with individual capsules, or in group seatings of four. The advantage of this design form is the private personal space for the riders.
This could be attractive in a day and age where safety in public transport systems is a concern. On a lesser scale, the privacy will rid riders of annoying behaviours inherent when large groups of people are travelling together - talking on cellphones, crying children and incessant talkers. However, these capsules don't allow for stretching of legs and will not suit those who suffer from claustrophobia. The capsule trains are perhaps best for commuters and thus shorter journeys.
Hamit Kanuni Kuralkan is the Australian based industrial designer behind this concept design.
