Tvillingar is a literal twist on the metro train that flips the archetypical station and maglev halfway upside down! Unlike classic designs where the cars sit on top of a track, the inverted train is secured on the side and levitated with super magnet tech between its upper and lower decks. This requires a unique column rail system to support and elevate the double decker train above ground. Each column also features its own wind turbine to harness the wind energy created by the high speed metro. Additionally, at each station, specialized floors collect the crowd’s footstep energy as they move about!
