Direct from India: Introducing the Helirickshaw

Flickr user calamur was recently in Mumbai, India where he shot this amazing photo of the latest in autorickshaw technology: THE HELIRICKSHAW! Never mind those geeks at MIT and their Transition flying car, this is the future of transportation! No more traffic jams, no more choking exhaust fumes — just raw Italian power lifting you into the clouds.

Alright, so the helicopter blades are probably for show, but this is still the coolest rickshaw I’ve ever seen. And if you’ve ever been to Mumbai — even for only a few hours — you’ve seen about 10 billion of them.
