Watch the cable cars on test over the River Thames

These futuristic cable cars look like something out of a movie or a game - but they are real, and travelling over the River Thames in London.

The pods will be a new way for commuters to get to work, as well as a tourist attraction linking east London with the O2 Arena.

They're currently being put through strict tests but their exact opening date seems to be a secret.

Transport for London aren't saying when the public will get to travel on them.
