Seibu Group of railways in Japan is planning to launch a new kind of train design. The new train will change the colors automatically according to the environment. A famous Japanese architect, who recently got a Nobel Prize for architecture, will work on the design of invisible train,
Seibu Group will launch this train at the event of completing its 100 years in 2018. The train will come with a surface made of crystals, which will change the colors and adjust according to the environment.
For example, if the train is traveling in an urban area, its color will change to red, yellow or blue. And if it is traveling through a rural area, its color will change to white.
Hitachi company Ltd will create this train. This company has also created many other unique trains in Japan, such as the one which runs at the speed of 200 miles per hour. The new invisible train will run on a track of about 178 kilometers.
The architect of this train stated, “the limited express travels in a variety of different sceneries, from the mountains of Chichibu to the middle of Tokyo, and I thought it would be good if the train could co-exist with this variety of scenery, I also would like it to be a limited express where large numbers of people can all relax in comfort, in their own way, like a living room, so that they think to themselves ‘I look forward to riding that train again.'”
Japan already runs world’s fastest bullet trains, and this new technology is just an addition to its wide range of train systems.
The invisible trains will not completely hide, its mirrors will be visible and you will be able to see it changing the color.
