    I liked slotcars as a kid. The cable car slot in San Francisco looks like a full size slot car track

    Here's a video on an idea I previously thought was impractical, battery swapping in EVs. The Chinese have developed an automated system that can swap the battery in less time than a gas fill up. Really neat idea for swapping batteries in electric scooters also. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2-xWYScsvts

    Electric car battery swapping is not new. The Tesla model S has/had the ability for battery swaps. There was a battery swap station built that I believe is now closed. Tesla even did a big press event where they swapped a battery in a car.
