These gadgets are brilliant for laughs, but in fact the most far-reaching and revolutionary idea of all comes from Finland. It is called MaaS (Mobility as a Service) and it will totally change the way we move.
The revolution is already starting in the Helsinki region, with the launch of the MaaS-based Whim app this October. It’ll bring us all the transport we need on all inclusive monthly packages, with the option to try the app on a pay-as-you-go basis too.
