|Concept Art of Hyperloop Inner Workings (by Camilo Sanchez)|
Elon Musk’s Hyperloop One is a magnetic levitation train, described as “a cross between a Concorde, a rail gun, and an air- hockey table.” Passengers will reportedly travel through massive transit tubes at speeds exceeding 700 miles per hour. This can take place either under or above ground.
Faster than most airline flights, this futuristic mode is smooth and silent. Weather-related turbulence is replaced by a virtually frictionless environment. Also gone is the roar and exhaust of jet engines.
As this new technology evolves, it will markedly reduce “the strain on existing infrastructure.” It can revolutionize work and leisure every bit as much as the horse, train, car and plane.
And then some.
