Future Cars

Future Cars

Summary: Cars are our most defining human mechanical invention. Odd, as in the large view of our history, they have been with us but a moment. But how they have changed our world and come to define us as a species in that short moment is precisely why they win this checkered flag. Consider the speed: The early history of what we call cars is endlessly argued over, but let us agree to start at 1885 when Karl Benz gave us the production automobile the AutoWagon. It was not exactly what we think of as a car (it had 3 wheels and was steered by two levers) but it ran on gasoline, could be operated by the average person, and priced to be attainable. But the important aspect here is that only a few short years later, in 1908, the Ford Model T was rolling off Detroit assembly lines by the thousands. In less than 20 years cars went from an interesting tinkerer’s invention to an absolute staple of modern life. Then cars changed the world. Remember-cars took stage on a world unready for them, the world of the horse and of the human foot. Real level roads, highways, parking lots and parking spots, curbs, detailed road maps, gas stations, motels and roadside diners, traffic signals and all the myriad infrastructures required to support drivers had to scramble into existence, in a fevered rush. Trucks introduced longrange delivery unheard of before-as trains only ever went along their tracks-trucks came to your town, your business, your house. The entire world around us that we take for granted looks the way it does, indeed works the way it does, because of the car. The locomotive before it certainly made large changes to the physical world. The car completely transformed it.
