16/01/2015

Elon Musk – again – plans to revolutionize mobility and transport, having revolutionized the automobile with Tesla, space with Space X, he now attacks the short-haul with the ultra fast Hyperloop.

In 2013, during a presentation, Elon Musk had mentioned working on a new transport technology for short and medium-haul with Hyperloop, a trip in a capsule at very high speed, a project that may appear as science fiction but Elon Musk decided to carry it through!

With two Tweets, Elon Musk communicated the information and the progress of its latest project, without giving specific date or horizon!

Your capsule travels in a low-pressure tube on air cushions, an engine located at the front swallows air to reject it in the back, thanks to the absence of friction this capsule can reach a speed of almost 1000kPh!

Elon Musk wants to build and test a first "track" in Texas to demonstrate the viability of the concept, we will keep you informed of course!

Last but not least, the price of a ticket will be lower than a plane ticket!

Here is an animation of a similar concept by ET3
