Mobility concepts for the future

Fliang 2019 – Mobility concepts for the future

Following on from our paper airplane competition last year, our current youth workshops also deal with the topic of “flying” in the broadest sense. The children show us how they imagine mobility in the future. Really great futuristic possibilities have been created that show us how traffic in cities could perhaps soon be handled. And with what spectacular flight or driving models one will be able to move around.

Whether teleporters, flying skateboards, electric scooters that can be operated via mobile phone: There are always new and ever more imaginative ideas, some still a little vague, others already very precise and mature. Whether this is realistic and whether it would be feasible at some point is not important.

After all, Alois Wolfmüller couldn’t imagine back then that there would actually be airplanes, and above all, in what form and to what extent people fly nowadays. Nevertheless, he thought about flight models, put them down on paper and developed them.

And he never doubted his ideas. When it comes to visions, nothing should stop you. Because only if there are people with imagination, imagination, visions and a strong will, something can move forward, things can be created new.

Fliàng – of flying shoes and teleporters

Fliàng – of flying shoes and teleporters

In our workshop “Fliàng 2019” we develop mobility concepts of the future together with pupils of the Landsberg secondary school. There are no limits to the imagination. Very futuristic, imaginative, creative and adventurous concepts have been successfully developed. We would like to introduce them briefly:

Carina has the idea of a teleporter: “In Landsberg there are several stations for teleporters, one of them is located at the Bayertor. You can go into the teleporter for just one euro, enter your destination address – and you’re there. Who wouldn’t wish for such a thing?

Jenny shows us her ideas of flying shoes and a city bus with a built-in whirlpool that people can use during their bus ride. She is particularly fond of flying shoes: “Just put the shoes on and take off. That would be so great,” she enthuses.

Hamad sees flying wheelchairs, teleporters and robots in the city of the future. “The robots carry the heavy school supplies – satchels, gym bags, etc. – for us students on our way to school,” she explains, imagining it to be quite pleasant. Even when she thinks of all the other things the robots could do… “for example, activities that are actually quite annoying.

For Ivan, the roads of the future are conveyor belts. Cars will no longer have to drive, pedestrians will no longer have to walk, because they will move on conveyor belts. But the disadvantage of this actually practical idea is: there is less nature, fewer trees and parks. Because the conveyor belts simply need space.

In Luca’s vision of the future, roads are no longer used at all. There are underground tunnels that run on electromagnetic trains. You can stop and get off every ten meters – so you can get to any place you want without having to change trains or walk long distances.

Sophia, on the other hand, also sees a piece of the past in the future. There are carriages as a means of transport again. Just like in the past, they are driven by horses. However, there are now – optionally open or closed – bus stops for horses.

Jeremy’s electric bus is a very special bus – a double-decker bus, in the upper part of which you can sleep. The dashboard is fully digitalized, including voice control and fully automatic transmission. “This electric bus is designed to bundle trips and thus reduce individual trips,” he explains. He is already thinking in fairly economical and ecological terms.

Many great ideas, three of which we would like to take a closer look at and make something of in different groups with different design possibilities: Comics with a preceding storyboard, an accident report about an air collision between a (flying) car and an electric scooter and a marketing strategy for the carriage of the future. So we get deeper into the matter. And we are all very curious to see what will come of it.

Giant wings of cable ties

Giant wings of cable ties

Parallel to our paper airplane workshop, our workshop leader Renate has prepared an “object for all”. We are building a six-meter replica of a wing model, she said.  No sooner said than done. Anyone who was interested could take part and create an impressive grand piano from about 12,000 cable ties.
 
And so on both workshop days from morning till late at night, we tied, pulled, loosened and reattached. With changing tinkerers, some only for a short time, some who lasted very long. A laborious, but also grounding and relaxing work, in which a great cohesion of all participants was created. Alone through the sheer will to be able to complete the object by the end of the project. And that it was actually completed in the short time available – each and every one of us made his or her contribution.
 
The completion was not so easy, because our 10,000 cable ties ran out and we had to buy 2,000 more as soon as possible. And also with these it became already again scarce. Hard to believe how many cable ties fit into the inner wire of the wing.
 
But we did it, and on Sunday afternoon we installed our replica of the Wolfmüller wing model on Hellmairplatz as part of a major ballooning campaign. Everybody who wanted was allowed to decorate the balloons with a message or a drawing. Afterwards we let them all rise into the air together. A really fascinating and contentwise well fitting finale for a very beautiful and loving project.
