Designing for people (1955)
by Henry Dreyfuss who actively worked as industrial designer in 30′-40′. Dreyfuss was not a stylist: he applied common sense and a scientific approach to design problems.
After World War II, Dreyfuss helped Lockheed convert military planes for civilian aviation. He also designed the interior of the 707 for Boeing.

Maglev (magnetic levitation)
Maglev transport is a means of flying a vehicle or object along a guideway by using magnets to create both lift and thrust, only a few inches above the guideway surface.- lifted off their guideway and thus are claimed to move more smoothly and quietly and require less maintenance than wheeled mass transit systems. High reliability and extremely low maintenance.
The highest recorded speed: 581 km/h (361 mph), Japan by the CJR’s MLX01.
Two commercial maglev transport systems presently in operation -China(Shanghai) , Japan(HSST “Linimo” line)
Two low speed maglev lines under construction – Korea(Seoul’s Incheon Airport.) and China(Beijing)
