Introduction of Hyperloop – future of public transportation.

What would be our next transportation look like? I found this good documentation called “Hyperloop Alpha” This is basically an introduction of hyperloop itself, ideas on how could it be implement, technical explanation and solar energy, geographical & coordination and the story behind it. Beside that it explains on how this new technology be able to reduce time to travel from dedicated destination……

So What is Hyperloop Anyway?

Short of figuring out real teleportation, which would of course be awesome
(someone please do this), the only option for super fast travel is to build a tube
over or under the ground that contains a special environment. This is where
things get tricky.

Part of the summary:

A high speed transportation system known as Hyperloop has been developed in
this document. The work has detailed two version of the Hyperloop: a
passenger only version and a passenger plus vehicle version. Hyperloop could
transport people, vehicles, and freight between Los Angeles and San Francisco
in 35 minutes. Transporting 7.4 million people each way and amortizing the
cost of $6 billion over 20 years gives a ticket price of $20 for a one-way trip for
the passenger version of Hyperloop……
