We live in an age of unbelievable technological progress. To a visitor from the distant past, this would surely seem like a utopian age. Yet in many areas of life, things don’t seem to have changed all that much, and transportation is a woeful example of this. The roads are still lined with cars, the skies streaked with airliners. 20th-century science fiction foresaw flying cars and teleporters; the 21st century settled for Segways.Dreams never die, however, and the fantasy of futuristic transportation is very much alive right now as exemplified by a concept called hyperloop. While it’s not as mind-shattering as a teleporter or as fun as a personal jetpack, the Hyperloop could revolutionize mass transit, shortening travel times on land and reducing environmental damage in the process.

How does it work?
Since the pods travel in a tube, they are not subject to shutdowns due to harsh weather, such as snow or polar vortexes.” Branson described the Hyperloop as “a pioneering technology with the power to create a fundamental, massive shift in human ingenuity.” “Over the next 50 years, hyperloop technology will spearhead a revolution in transportation,” he wrote in a post for weird
In terms of technology, the Hyperloop works through magnetically propelled capsules or pods which move through a low-pressure, near-vacuum tube that carries passengers or cargo at over 1,000km/h. Also, since the pods travel in a tube, they are not subject to shutdowns due to harsh weather, such as snow or polar vortexes. The low pressure minimises friction and air resistance, therefore reducing the power needed and allowing the ultra-high-speed hovertrain to take minutes rather than hours to reach a destination.
