  1. First

  2. Now if there is ever a breach in that vacuum chamber, it will be catastrophic. As a widely used transportation system I cannot see this working.

    • This is not for the transportation system it’s for the rich who would like nice toys, it’s very expensive, only able to transport few at time and not even that fast and the idea of levitating is already in action with trains. So all in all this is like the Ferrari of transportation useless on big scale but great for showing off

    • @Lucas Bowman Yes, unlike a rail coming loose on a regular train! Also, the hyperloop has air pumps that would slow the decompression.

    • @Hlm WITHANL not true at all. There are several high capacity hyperloops being developed for transportation between cities. However, I think I understand where you are coming from. This is not to replace public transit systems within cities. Why would you need 700+km/h for 2 km distance between stations. It wouldn’t even be able to get up to speed within that short of a distance.

      This is to replace to horrid airline industry.

    • If an airplane lost one of its wings it would be catastrophic, what’s your point?

      Everything has risks you know.

    • @Lucas Bowman why do it in a tube when trains like this already operate without the tube with measurable cost and data to compare it to airline and other transportation.

  3. So they can go slower then trains already go?

  4. Really hard to see how this would be a viable business without taxpayers paying part (if not most) of the bill. And, is manufacturing TUBES crisscrossing the country really better for the planet than a regular jet airplane? Interesting idea that I think should be researched but I have doubt. But then again, I’m just some random cynical person on the internet.

    • Hyperloops are much more affordable than airliners.

      The airline industry as a whole has never made any money. Keep that in mind.

    Is it just me or is the wording of this video’s title a little awkward?

  6. 13:43 I love that. Do you love me? πŸ˜πŸ’‹ πŸ’πŸ’–β€οΈ

  7. I can’t imagine how jiggly this would be at it’s designed speed of 700 mph? All current high speed trains are smoother than this at higher speeds of 300 mph. Would be nice to see an on off ramp/tube, just to see how a complete prototype would function.

  8. I think this is merely testing mankinds abilities. I dont think this would be practical on earth at all. Maybe on Mars.

  9. So when is this going to be on Mars again ?

    Not that impressive.

  11. Very happy πŸ˜πŸ’‹ πŸ’πŸ’–β™₯️❀️

  12. how about revitalizing America’s inadequate bus and train systems first?

    A virgin nails their first what now?

  14. 160 km is less then a hundred miles per hour…..ah not that impressed

  15. Elon Musk test it but don’t get in it, curious no

    Traveling at those speeds, those seat belts wouldn’t make a difference if anything went awry.

  17. Congratulations, you reinvented the pneumatic subway, something we had 100 years ago but got rid of because it doesn’t scale.
