For the nostalgic few, it is quite easy to imagine Hyperloop as a division of Capsule Corp with their ground breaking innovation. The project is aimed at reinventing transportation to eliminate barriers of time and distance to achieve safe, efficient and sustainable transportation of cargo and passengers.
With an innovation campus located in the downtown Los Angeles Art District, it is no surprise that hyperloop is dedicated to building incredible pieces of advanced machinery; ”We are inventing the technology of the future of transportation”. Ranging from state of the art wind tunnels, levitation rigs to electromagnetic test stands, Hyperloop is certainly bringing to life the 5th mode of transportation.
We are now left with one question, how does it all work?
“The system uses electrical propulsion to accelerate a passenger or cargo vehicle through a tube in a low pressure environment. The autonomous vehicle levitates slightly above the track and glides at faster-than-airline speeds over long distances, eliminating direct emissions, noise, delay and weather concerns.”
