Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Motors, announced a new personnel transport system earlier this year. It’s called the Hyperlopp and is what he describes as a “cross between a Concorde, a railgun, and an air hockey table”. Recently, ET3 Worldwide released a YouTube video describing the process.
Musk claims that this system will operate at such high speeds that it could transport a person from New York to California in 30-45 minutes whilst only feeling the G-force of riding in a car. The system uses airless vacuum tubes on frictionless Maglev tracks and could reach a maximum speed of up to 4,000 miles per hour.
