Concept car of the future, designed by a youg girl

If you are thinking of changing your car, think again.

Is Luke Skywalker's Land Speeder from Star Wars finally a reality? No, but if that idea ever came to pass, this is sort of how it might look.

The video below shows a VW flying two-seater zipping through Beijing. The car, powered by minerals underground, was the brainchild of a girl in China who responded to the carmaker's call for car innovation concepts. The idea is that thrusters on the back of the car would propel it forward.

Getting the "car" to work for real would require electromagnetic strips embedded into the roads below it, creating the hovering effect via electromagnetic suspension. As a prize, the girl's parents got to "test drive" the car in a simulated video. According to Creativity Online, VW received 119,000 ideas and got 33 million hits on its website.
