Elon Musk was the co-founder of PayPal, he’s also the founder and CEO Space X and Tesla. You’d think that a man with so many irons in the fire wouldn’t have time to try and built out a new form of transportation for the world, but you’d be wrong. Elon’s also working on building the Hyperloop.
The concept for the Hyperloop was unveiled by Elon Musk back in 2013, and now there’s a working prototype after the idea recently received government approval. The idea is to use reduced-pressure tubes for high-speed travel and capsules large enough for people and cargo to be stored in will be pushed through these tubes using air compressors and motors.
Elon shared a video of the Hyperloop in action. In this clip, we see the Hyperloop WARR pod accelerate from 0 to 201 MPH in a 0.8-mile near vacuum chamber.
If this is the future of travel I’m totally on board with this.
