The Hyperloop is a new mode of transport consisting of a reduced-pressure tube in which pods powered by solar energy can travel at extremely high-speed due to the low pressure. Two years ago the Hyperloop was only a white paper published by Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, but now two independent companies are working hard to make the project happen.
One of these companies is Hyperloop Technologies, which posted pictures showing decent progress on the new mode of transport…
If you are interested in the Hyperloop, I suggest following Hyperloop Technologies on Twitter. For a company building very high-tech stuff, they are generous in sharing pictures of their progress. Here’s just a few examples of the cool tech they recently posted:
