...but not exactly where I live.

Really well-made time lapse video taken from the Yurikamome monorail in Tokyo. This is a completely computer-controlled monorail without any drivers/engineers, so a passenger can sit right up in front and take stuff like this video. The line is pretty new and runs through a lot of newly built up parts of Tokyo; i.e., mostly parts of Tokyo built on reclaimed land.

Very cool movie Isamu! I kept expecting the big black rectangle to appear.

Speaking of 2001 a space odyssey, I would be dubious of a high speed train without any human controlling it. Many years of scifi training have instilled a suspicion of robots.

Thanks for the post!
