Personal MagLev train might be a bit excessive

You've probably heard of MagLev trains before, but only in the context of high-speed trains between high-density population centers. They're insanely expensive, but once built are relatively efficient to run and are incredibly fast. So it's not really the tech you'd expect to see in a personal transportation system.

Well, in Japan, Tyco and Gakken have just unveiled a personal MagLev transport. Yes, it's a tiny train that can carry a single person around a track. What could it possibly be used for? And who would ever spend the money to build it? Both questions that are, as of now, unanswered. But hey, if you're looking for a way to trek around your gigantic estate to your many buildings, this could be a nice solution.
