Hyperloop: A hyperloop is an ultra-high-speed transport system in a low-pressure vacuum tube. Firm HyperloopTT is reportedly now working on several potential projects, including a "Great Lakes" link between Chicago, Cleveland and Pittsburgh.
Luggage trackers: Lost luggage no more. Samsara's Tag Smart suitcase contains an integrated AirTag that syncs with Apple's Find My app and uses Bluetooth to track the bag's location.
Flying taxis: These futuristic aircraft tend to be electric, ultralight and kitted out with autopilot software.

Jetson One: "Electric personal flying cars will revolutionize adventurous travel," says Jetson co-founder Peter Ternstrom. His company has created this single-person, all-electric eVTOL with auto-hover, stable flight and landing capabilities.
