This is a game-changer. Fortune reports that Hyperloop One has presented a plan for a high-speed tube that could ferry passengers between locations at 700 miles per hour. According to the creators, a trip between NYC and Washington, D.C., which currently takes about 3 hours via train, would only take 20 minutes. How on earth, you ask?! Magnetically levitating pods.
“I think it’s going to become a reality,” Gabe Klein, the former head of the D.C. Department of Transportation, said. “I think it may take longer than people think to get through all the right-of-way clearances and the sort of government regulations. But I think we are in for a sea change in terms of long-haul transportation.”
Someday, the company hopes to connect 80-percent of the United States through electromagnetic tubes. Changing your commute as you know it.
