After its popular bullet trains, Japan is all set to roll out ‘Invisible train’ in 2018.
The train is designed for the Seibu Group’s centennial as a part of their company 100th anniversary.
The train will have a semi-reflective surface that will give the illusion of invisibility when its speeding through countryside.
Famous Japanese architect Kazuyo Sejima, who will design the train, wants it to be soft with the interior having the feeling of a living room.
“I thought it would be good if the train could gently coexist with this variety of scenery. I also would like it to be a limited express where large numbers of people can all relax in comfort, in their own way, like a living room, so that they think to themselves ‘I look forward to riding that train again’.”
Known as the Red Arrow commuter train, commuters will be able to ride it on a limited number of routes in Japan.
