Tap water comes in many flavors. In fact, it can be so specific to each locality that some people consider it the secret ingredient in New York bagels and pizza. But unpalatable drinking water can prompt people to scramble for filters, trying to rid their water of the flavor of pennies, dirt or bleach. Moreover, people may worry that funny-tasting tap water may carry dangerous substances or pathogens.

SINGAPORE — Before the year is up, Singaporeans could be hopping on these driverless pod vehicles to get to school and work. The pods run on electricity, and are able to travel autonomously on smaller roads, such as those within a gated community or school campus. 2getthere, the Dutch maker of the pods, and Singaporean transportation operator SMRT on Wednesday announced they will be building 24-passenger cars that are slated to run commercially by the end of the year. They’ve established a new joint venture called 2getthere Asia that will operate and maintain the vehicles in the city state.
