This bus of the future is pure genius

We're not sure we really need to write any words for this article. Seriously, just look at that gif above. What a brilliant idea. Why has no one thought of this until now?

A concept of a bus that avoids traffic by simply driving over the top of it has been unveiled at the 19th International High-Tech Expo in Beijing. It aims to solve congestion problems by straddling the cars beneath it, which can drive as normal below the belly of the bus.

The Transit Explore Bus company is in the process of building a life-size model which would have a clearance of seven-feet, run on rails within roads - akin to those of a tram - and carry up to 1,400 passengers. Frankly, it can't come soon enough.

Imagine sailing like a king through Piccadilly Circus in one of these bad boys? It'd be almost as good as the DLR... until it meets a double decker. 

Take a look at some images of the concept model below.
