Dyson balloon porn

In other science news, it appears some Dyson engineers with a video camera may have stumbled up the fabled Tube Transport System of Futurama.

Watch the above video. Now, granted, the technology isn’t perfect, yet. The balloon bangs into the edges of the fans, is fairly slow moving and, you know, is a helium-filled balloon and not a water-and-gas-and-excrement-filled human. But the idea is there. I swear it.

Here’s more on Fututrama’s futurey transport system (although, let’s not forget, the Jetsons did it first):

The Tube Transport System is a form of mass transit. A user announces where he or she wishes to go, and the tube will activate and route them to their desired destination. Users go head first into the tube, giving the user a chance to land on their feet.

The Tube Transport System is apparently free of charge, though users may be tracked using biometrics and charged directly to their bank accounts. (via the Infosphere, the Futurama wiki)

Now, previously some have suggested using vacuums as the propulsive force in the tubes, but I’m go to go out on a completely unscientific limb here and say the vacuum tube theory is bunk. The Dyson fan system keeps the object comfortably in the middle of the propulsion device. A vacuum tube would — doubtlessly — create a great deal of unwanted tube-burns and what not. Seriously. Have you ever heard what happens when you suck a penny up a vacuum? Not pretty.

Anyway, and more importantly: don’t you feel dirty after watching this?
