A Chinese engineer has designed a two-wheeled car of the future based on a 1961 Ford model.

一位中国工程师根据1961年的福特车型设计了一款未来的双轮汽车。

Self balancing two-wheel cars, known as gyrocars, have been around for over 100 years, but have failed to catch on.

自平衡双轮汽车,被称为陀螺仪,已经存在100多年了,但一直没有流行起来。

Zhu Lingyun hopes to change that with his gyrocar design, inspired by the 1961 Ford Gyron.

祝凌云希望通过他的陀螺仪设计来改变这一点,灵感来自于1961年的福特Gyron。

The two-wheeled vehicle doesn't have a steering wheel or acceleration pedal, and is instead controlled by a computer mouse and 24-inch screen.

这款两轮车没有方向盘或加速踏板,而是由电脑鼠标和24英寸屏幕控制。

The car can also drive autonomously, and could go on sale by 2020, its inventor claims.

它的发明者称,这款车还能自动驾驶,到2020年就能上市销售。

Beijing Lingyun Intelligent Technology Co plans to build the car for public use, and the vehicle is already undergoing testing in China.

北京凌云智能科技有限公司计划生产供公众使用的汽车,这款汽车已经在中国进行测试。

'I was told by a potential investor that I have zero chance to make the idea work,' Zhu, 40, said to Bloomberg after a test drive of a prototype called the 1703.

在对一款名为1703的样机进行试驾后,40岁的祝凌云对彭博社说,“一位有意向投资者告诉我,我没有机会实现这个想法。”

'But I firmly believe this is the future of urban transportation because it is exquisite, energy-saving and easy to manage. I have to make it.'

“但我坚信,这是城市交通的未来,因为它精致、节能、易于管理。我必须做到。”

Zhu and his startup Lingyun hope to have the car on the market by 2020.

祝先生和他的创业公司凌云公司有望到2020年将这款车推向市场。

He first spotted Ford's Gyron on the internet five years ago, and immediately wanted to build his own.

五年前,他在互联网上第一次发现了福特的Gyron汽车,就立即想到要制造自己的汽车。

The car was on the May 1961 cover of Car Life magazine and then displayed at the Detroit Motor Show.

这辆车是1961年5月的《汽车生活》杂志的封面,之后在底特律车展上展出。

In 2014, Zhu started Lingyun with $470,000 in investments and three employees.

2014年,祝凌云以47万美元的投资和3名员工创办了凌云。

The company is now worth $60million.

这家公司现在估值6000万美元。

The Gyron had two seats and a tail fin and never went into production.

福特的Gyron汽车有两个座位和一个尾翼,从未投产。

Zhu's car is a single-seater that is about 10 feet long and can reach speeds of up to 62 mph.

而祝凌云的车是单座的,大约10英尺长,最高时速可达62英里。

'On most occasions, a car is used by a single person, so a car for one person has market prospects,' said Li Jianwei, who led Sequoia Capital's investment into Lingyun in 2014.

2014年领导红杉资本投资凌云公司的李建伟说,“多数情况下,一辆车只为一个人所用,所以单座汽车有市场前景。”

'As long as they can prove that their vehicles are reliable and safe, the government will gradually accept it. We took this as a long-term investment.'

“只要他们能证明自己的汽车是安全可靠的,政府就会慢慢接受。我们认为这是一项长期投资。”

The 1703 prototype can drive autonomously or can be controlled by the smartscreen.

1703原型可以自动驾驶,也可以由智能屏幕控制。
