good evening it's a great pleasure to be here uh i was just earlier with journalist uh
00:00:11
given you know this sort of told to have to get and uh as a transit yeah but what is your feeling really about
00:00:19
and uh i said you know i said oh it's it's the ivory tower howls different that's all
00:00:25
and i said you know it's different because the of the old couple know your spirit
00:00:30
you know this is now another university it's not just
00:00:34
some place uh where the usual stuff happens
00:00:38
some exceptional things happen and when i see citizens the energy in the room and what has been achieved
00:00:44
over the last few months then i can see i was really speaking the tools that with the feelings is
00:00:50
uh even before coming here so i would like to thank actually bothers the team and their leaders
00:00:57
a four hours of work that you did she it on this exchange interesting project
00:01:02
now when i say says i also have to say is that it's a from true with somebody i know last issue there
00:01:11
yes messages there and you know when i read i was a a
00:01:15
a nice seven is a great fan of it on mars
00:01:19
can happen ah i guess i say all right
00:01:24
maybe some other you know ah else or you don't
00:01:30
but you have also i
00:01:32
something that and and you know one link all over the site who stay in so
00:01:37
long it's incredible you know magnetic levitation i'm not a speed of flammable and thinking
00:01:44
i have seen this before right so when i was a graduate student okay that's a
00:01:48
long time ago i'm sorry to say but it puts things in historical perfect
00:01:53
i have had a window in front of my face and there was a test driver
00:01:58
with magnetic levitation okay and that has drawn was not here on this
00:02:03
campus you got on the campus of e. p. f. l.
00:02:06
and it was a test run for something cool switches back
00:02:11
unseen then drops with metal ease message they're so yes you need all that was that
00:02:17
there was going to be a test run between jean yves and large town
00:02:20
the ground with uh you know reduce air pressure
00:02:24
magnetic levitation and every single thing right
00:02:30
and you just i shall say that one must sort of shareholders backslide yeah right
00:02:35
you know he had said he's marketing people who tell us also says intricate like yeah
00:02:40
of doing magnetic levitation unit you uh and another low pressure and so
00:02:47
i i might actually do also to pay tribute walls they don't
00:02:51
you know gets girls and guys uh that was this this is incredible but
00:02:56
i want to be interviewed to message there who has seen it all
00:03:00
well that's thirty five years ago or something like this and that's a time there
00:03:05
was no we'll ask i think that's what probably singing that's all okay
00:03:09
because messages that was preaching is a better right because this was train
00:03:15
company or whatever c. f. f. it was sort of it was this crazy idea magnetic levitation and
00:03:21
you want another trial move blah blah ever buy into the system as for the concert
00:03:27
and so a lot of very good what was going on but there was no crazy american will couple
00:03:33
right and that i use also my message is that we need more crazy swiss on popcorn
00:03:40
okay this is so that was sort of probably improvise simply because i was homeless
00:03:43
issue for it and that only make sure that we remember you know
00:03:48
actually great technology completely out of great research and great
00:03:52
people that have great ideas putting it all
00:03:55
together give just sort of projects that you guys are run okay so here comes tool
00:04:00
you know the set set of slides okay and so this morning of
00:04:04
course i'm looking at this phase mode of transportation i was thinking
00:04:08
yes that's the right day i was talking to train because that was the you
00:04:12
know several say reasonable so probably you know with this mode of transportation
00:04:17
rainy day shy mediates knowing the no problem you will travel at the speed of so
00:04:23
very good okay so here we have the comparisons you haven't noticed uh as this is your what creates
00:04:31
global warming uh this is what helps us you know reduce global
00:04:36
warming it's a a quite a bit of an improvement
00:04:39
says that i continues to global warming you also knows it's
00:04:43
a uh it's actually a a subject of concern
00:04:46
it was i who uh you know sometimes people forget set travelling from journey about them your
00:04:52
an aeroplane fall in a in a club c. uses say thing
00:04:56
is taking an individual car and driving across yep time thing
00:05:01
move citizens of this country and the world actually have no idea yes that's it's it's a carton footprint
00:05:07
of air travel okay i'm sorry you you're talking about something that could be is the best
00:05:12
of all worlds right it would be something that would be going faster than there but
00:05:17
and because of the efficiency and because it's electrically our big
00:05:23
actually magnetic levitation song it will also be with
00:05:26
much smaller carmen footprints that uh since the
00:05:30
uh the aeroplanes achieve actually put used today okay some this is a good idea
00:05:37
obviously it has a few challenges okay and the challenges than i am and that's you know
00:05:45
whereas the rubber hits the road is that ah they are
00:05:49
not only use a car challenge and see i haven't
00:05:53
the transportation challenge so reasonably the general challenge uh you know live for a
00:05:58
long time in europe so this looks not like a quiet place
00:06:02
uh but you know that's what we're also going to be answered with
00:06:06
seems is very complex environment of mother mobility the challenge of sustainability
00:06:12
projects like hyper lou have really a role play will it be a reality we
00:06:17
will see right if it's a great idea if the technology is right
00:06:21
funding will be set it will become a reality and it will potentially change the way
00:06:27
you know so i this is a new version of the a train station
00:06:32
alright so working on this would be a this morning getting
00:06:35
quite low prices i must admit uh on and
00:06:39
uh i i guess it will take somebody happy was it's what five minutes to go g. o.
00:06:46
or something like this um it has a very good design and as
00:06:50
far as i'm concerned i i'll be happy to actually use it
00:06:53
whenever each will not but i find very interesting it's a sort of
00:06:57
projects like so hyper who challenge project you guys are running
00:07:01
is that it's archetypal either does the recording i had
00:07:06
earlier today i'm sorry to be the anecdote mode
00:07:09
i had a toaster a discussion actually we tried it works as
00:07:12
a nobel prize in chemistry and we're talking about individually reserve
00:07:17
and i said you know it's really resort each really requires people from different domains
00:07:23
to have assured domain question and you question to work so it's not
00:07:29
you know you know you would lose his you'd like that and you know we each you know stay in our
00:07:33
corners is really finding you challenge soul which neither of the two console and here we have a challenge
00:07:40
where i'm very pleased to see we have practically the
00:07:43
entire contents representative of the entire count was
00:07:47
you know working together watches all the channels it's i find all week stream yet
00:07:52
exciting stuff white school projects are the p. f. l. or whole exciting
00:07:57
and with this i would like to to thank you for your attention thank you for being here thinking for
