Meet the Shweeb, a human-powered monorail system. This cool thing runs on a track with humans inside of a weather sealed aerodynamic pod. You might try and book a vacation to Rotorua, New Zealand, because that's where this thing is currently located. The Shweeb is an example of a green transportation system that has minimum emissions since it's powered by humans that push pedals inside the pod. Although nobody wants to implement the system as a transportation method in their city, it's still considered a tourist attraction for those that want a bit of unique recreation. Good news though, the Shweeb will also be built (by 2015) in a Niagara Falls, Canada amusement park. Here's to thinking outside the box. This is definitely a cool invention.
