That’s right people! JWU recently took a journey to the country of Tennessee. On our trip we were amazed at some of the technological advancments of the airports and airplanes we traveled. As if air flight wasn’t mind boggling enough, these are some of the things we saw on our journey:
“Flat Screen” Televisions in the concourses.
The pilots spoke to us over a speaker system in the plane.
The seats on the aircraft we designed as flotation devices “In the unlikely even of a water landing”. High speed underground trains (pictured)
Moving stairs that you just stand on and they carry you up or down (pictured)Futuristic aerospace tentlike ceiling (pictured)
Futuristic silver trash recepticles (Pictured)My favorite, a moving floor panel. No need for walking anymore! Simply step on this “magic carpet” and it wisks you away! (Pictured)
Statues of happy naked people. The future is astonishing! (Pictured)
Futuristic structure with colored lights (Pictured)
The future is in fact here! That means Jake Wilkinson’s Unicycle needs to release the new album “Hits From the Future”
PS JWU was in Nashville this week. This could have been a huge opportunity for us to make it big, but we forgot to bring demo CDs to pass out. So we hoped to maybe play some of our songs on Music Row but we didn’t really know what to do…so we didn’t. Charity did get to meet a reasonable facsimile of Elvis Presley though (Pictured)
