SpaceX and Tesla Test Hyperloop Vehicle at 220 Miles per Hour

One has to wonder what will happen when the other two companies with test tracks Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT) and Hardt Global start testing their systems. Hardt has a high-speed Hyperloop test track at the Technical University of Delft in the Netherlands. HTT is building a test track and a passenger pod in Toulouse, France.

Five ways; Oops we Mean Ten Ways that Hyperloop can make a Lot of Money

As a next generation delivery mechanism and logistics solution for freight, packages and mail. Hyperloop One CEO Rob Lloyd has described his company’s technology as “Amazon Prime on steroids.” That means Hyperloop would supercharge ecommerce by greatly increasing its’ speed and efficiency, while tremendously reducing costs. For example costs might be cut up to 90% by eliminating the need for air freight while speed might be increased by a factor of 50% (Hyperloop currently moves at speeds of nearly 300 miles per and might be capable of traveling at 700 miles per hour).

How Hyperloop can Prevent Food Shortages and Make a lot of Money in the Process

The Hyperloop might be the key to preventing global food shortages. The world’s increasingly obsolete, slow, overworked and inefficient transportation structure makes shortages of food more likely.

Hyperloop is a potential solution to this problem because it might be capable of moving fast amounts of food at high speeds. More importantly because it operates inside a large tube, Hyperloop is far less vulnerable to the weather than current transport technologies.

The Future of Ground Transportation belongs to Hyperloop One not Elon Musk

Hyperloop One’s pod is already faster than America’s swiftest train. Even at that speed Hyperloop One has a highly effective transportation solution. It would travel the distance between Denver and Colorado Springs; around 71 miles or 114.263 kilometers, in roughly 25 minutes.

Is Musk’s “New York to Washington DC Hyperloop a Joke?”

Strangely enough Musk’s tunnel is technologically feasible. Hyperloop One is already testing a full-sized Hyperloop in North Las Vegas. It would be a fairly simple; but expensive, matter to bore new tunnels under Washington, New York and Philadelphia – or repurpose some older tunnels.

Is Hyperloop One about to Have a Real “Kitty Hawk Moment?”

A passenger carrying Hyperloop is about to appear and it might make this technology into a serious investment. What’s even more exciting is that it might be possible for anybody to ride in a Hyperloop Pod in Las Vegas or the UAE in a few years.

Hyperloop One Made History on May 12 and Nobody Noticed

Hyperloop may have had its’ “Kitty Hawk moment” on May 12 and nobody noticed. That was the day Hyperloop One tested the first full-sized pod in a tube at its North Las Vegas, Nevada, test track.

You might be able to live aboard the Hyperloop

Nor would it be hard to imagine other traveling amenities such as a Hyperloop Store, a Hyperloop Hospital, Hyperloop offices or a traveling Hyperloop Post Office. Mail would be sorted in the moving Hyperloop Post Office; while the Hyperloop Hospital would take surgeons and operating rooms to patients. The Hyperloop Store would be a travelling emporium or showroom that would move from town to town.
