Remember when that concept video of a massive bus that allowed traffic to pass under it took over social media with its futuristic and far fletched design? Well, China actually built it, and it’s pretty spectacular. The bus, which can drive right over traffic jams is is called the Transit Elevated Bus, and it was introduced at the China Beijing International High-Tech Expo in May and the developers Jinchuan Group said they could build a prototype by August. And unlike in the Western world, the company was true to their word. The goliath bus was built and is now being tested on a 300 meter track in Qinhuangdao, Hebei. If all tests go according to plan, developers say it can be ready for widespread use within the year.
