Elon Musk’s Hyperloop had its first test on May 12 and the crew recently uploaded video of the successful run.
It’s an ‘aerodynamic pod using magnetic levitation’ allowing people to travel up to 700 miles per hour.
Expectedly, the test was only five seconds long and only made it to 70 mph. But when we’re talking about a bullet the size of a train, let’s take baby steps… 😉
Hyperloop One is aiming to transport passengers from LA to San Francisco and is made primarily of structural aluminum and carbon fiber. The current pods are 28 feet long. The Tesla CEO’s project currently employs 200 people in LA where it’s based, and the test track in Nevada.
