Transit X: Flying Solar Pods
Wasn't this that PRT pod concept in Israel? Iguess they are now lining the rail housing roof with solar panels...

A skateboard platform with interchangable pods. The regular car pod has nice forward and backward sliding doors, so interior access from the side is full length

Bell Air Taxi Concept Experience at CES 2018
Pod design for a VTOL air taxi, but absolutely no shots of the pod carrier or propulsion. Likely a multicopter, possibly a tiltrotor.

Freight Shuttle International – Moving Freight into the Future
I guess you could call this first mile transport? Cargo container shuttle system to move containers to railheads or distribution warehouses from a port. Definitely not a hyperloop competitor.

I wonder if the wraparound display would be useful for a workstation? Though 5760 x 1080 sounds like they just ganged 3 HD projectors together. Need to step up the game to 4K at least...

Very High Speed Transit System
Interesting bit on a possible nuclear subterrene, a tunnel boring machine using an high heat annular cutting face, which melts the rock and seals the tunnel, while passing over a smoothed out rock core that can be cut into large blocks for debris removal and transport.

NASA - OMEGA Project
Interesting idea of feeding effluent/wastewater/sewage into ocean floating clear tubes to make algae and clean the water. End run around the issues of fertilizer/nutrient feeds for algae production, algae growth medium location, facility structure cost and location, and nicely deals with the wastewater output of sewage treatment facilities.

The Unwanted Blog » Blog Archive » New for 1961: The Nuclear Outboard Motor
GE"s 1961 podded marine nuclear propulsion pod, using a marinized variant of their airborne nuclear powerplant, using a closed loop neon gas loop running through the turboshaft, cooled by seawater heat exchangers. Modernize this as a double ended electric azipod and you have something interesting.

AAI, Overwatch and ViaSat to Demonstrate FASTCOM(TM) Expeditionary Cellular Communications Network at AUSA 2010 Annual Meeting & Exposition
FASTCOM provides a way to force a cellular network onto an area by literally flying cellular base station microcells as UAV cargo pods to function as a data relay node, providing 3G communications in areas with disabled (but not jammed/denied) cellular networks. Such as Egypt for example during the recent protests.
