Hyperloop Is Here.
Hyperloop, dubbed “the fifth mode of transport,” is real. At least, that’s what the introductory video (16 Sep 2015) released this week on YouTube is trying to communicate – WATCH HERE.
- Hyperloop is a project envisioned by engineer and inventor Elon Musk. In short, the goal is to build a high-speed transportation system using a low-pressure tube train, with a top speed of 800 miles per hour (1,300 km/h). Hyperloop Technologies and Hyperloop Transportation Technologies are both research companies looking to turn Musk’s vision into reality. The former company has undergone a seed round led by SherpaVentures, while the latter is crowdsourced. Read official Press release here (VentureBeat)
