Exactly, build a prototype and see if it works well enough to make demolishing bridges elsewhere worth it.

The stations are clearly elevated much as you would have with an overhead monorail, etc., in which case lifts/ramps are doable for access. Even though everyone's calling it a bus, I see this less as a replacement for a regular city bus with stops every block, more for a metro system with a relatively limited number of stops.

They're right here INSISTING that well, okay okay, it got built, but IT'LL NEVER WORK! Because turns and trucks and bridges and all KINDS of DUH OBVIOUS real-world stuff (not that they've ever seen it, holed up their moms' basements) that those stupid "engineers" CLEARLY haven't thought about before pissing away MILLIONS on this thing!

In other words, a normal day on Slashdot. :)

I remember buying a camera attachment for my Ericsson T68. Not long after that, every phone had a camera.

So if I rush out to buy this thing because I can clip a projector on it, there'll be better phones with better projectors built in long before my phone's out of contract.

Speaker module, though... Those things should come with a built-in shaped charge to take out the asshat who doesn't understand what headphones are for.
