Are You In The (Hyper)Loop?


Technology has come one step closer to creating a mix between “a concorde, a railgun, and an air hockey table,” as Elon Musk describes it. The Hyperloop is a method of transportation envisioned by Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla Motors, Paypal, and SpaceX.

This concept is projected to be a leap in transportation technology; serving as an extremely rapid method of travel, similar to a train, that would journey significant distances.

On January 30th, students from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) were awarded high honors after having successfully created the best overall design for the concept vehicle.

Elon Musk has now established plans to build and test small scale versions of the design at the SpaceX headquarters in Hawthorne, California.

Elon Musk had expressed his belief that the HyperLoop would come to be “a fifth mode of transportation,” and while it may seem far fetched to think that such an advanced technology,one that is planned to travel 750 miles per hour, would ever make its way into the day-to-day lives of individuals in the near future; the advancements made by the team from MIT have brought the concept one step closer to reality.

Just share it.
