This is inside the new city. Where people live. Flowers, gardens, no slums, no street people, no hungry people. More around those to the middle bit. Little buildings, computer grids the city. But it's not one computer, it's like six, on separate circuits. -If one dies, the next one takes over. -So it's like a backup system? -Always. -OK. This is just a trip through the city. -The city has a window cleaner to go round taking... -Is that a machine? -No guy cleaning it. Yeah. That would be a lot of work, wouldn't it. This is the monorail going into the centre building. This is the station where you get on the monorail. The centre building is computerised. This is the access centre to musical instruments, cameras, books, anything anybody wants in the city. But we recommend when you get back home, put your camera back in the camera center. That makes cameras available to everybody, no matter where you're at. You can keep the camera if you want to. We recommend that you don't fill your cars up with crap. Just put it in the camera centre. -So you can check out a violin. -You can borrow stuff. -Just like the library. -OK. That's a good idea. -Library is free and no need to pay for it. Only books and videos but this one for everything. If I make things available, you have nobody hitting you on the head. Right. Taking your watch. It's cheaper to give them a watch than putting them in jail for four years. That's a thousand watches. Feeding, medical, taking care of them. So you understand that rotary bicycle revolves. go around there. All rooftops are either gardens or solar generators. -OK, and the windows are too you say solar generators? -Yeah everything. This airplane fits into that and makes up one airplane. When that lands, the passenger section is unloaded. There it is going to the air terminal. Here it picks up a full passenger section. If you have to wait a half hour for everybody to get out of the airplane. The airplane does not need to rest. People do. So you have no loading and unloading. Just loading the fuel. And then the airplane goes down into the air terminal. . Now this is a helicopter where the the blades go around, not the centre, just these turn around. And this turns up like a rudder when it's going this way. (Woman)-Right. OK. So it should become more aerodynamic? (Cameraman)-Could you explain how that would work, that helicopter? Just in case of emergency, if fire breaks out in that unit, this could propel itself off that unit into water. (Woman)-Oh, it becomes like a boat. You've flown in airliners? They tell you under the seat there's a life raft. Goes up and round. They show you how. But they don't tell you if you land in the North Sea, you've got 12 minutes, no more. So we don't want people going in the water in a life raft. This unit is sealed. Has food and everything else. That unit we don't care about. That's the power plant. The gasoline. Alright now, when the airplane is coming in for landing, the first time, the landing gear comes down. Now if the landing gear doesn't come down, it's going to spark on the runway. Like a bounce. And the fuel is going to ignite. Most people, according to statistics, are not killed in aircrashes; they're killed by fire. So, whenever plane's coming in line, if the landing gear doesn't come down, that blows the fuel off. Fact is it didn't come down. Blows the fuel off. That lessens the chance of danger. You understand that. That's what that's about. But if it lands and the brakes fail, which sometimes happens; the plane kills people, goes in the buildings, sets it on fire. When the brakes fail, that makes a net come up on the runway, stainless steel. It's all on the runway, the net can come up. So prevent failure of the brakes and injuring people. (Cameraman)-Could you explain how the helicopter design works? I didn't want to give the details but there's a cable connecting this blade triangle which takes the load off. Distributes the load on the centre of the wing. The helicopter, these are areas where the blades flex. You know what pitch control means? The blade advancing has less pitch. The blade going away has more pitch. That's called cyclic pitch control. Goes around and when it gets to a certain elevation, it could shut off rotation and propel it forward. A helicopter is inefficient going forwards. But if you freeze the blades, just get up as high as you want, turn your __ backward. __ propulsion. The helicopter flies off. The elevators are here, here and here. I didn't want to give all the detail because people will take that. (Woman)-How much does it cost though? Do you have resources?
