Post subject: Musk’s 800mph Hyperloop? The maglev vacuum train explained Posted: 16.01.2015 19:31
... The Hyperloop is essentially a futuristic train that Musk calls "a cross between a Concorde, a railgun and an air hockey table". It's based on the Very High Speed Transit System proposed in 1972 which combines a magnetic levitation train and a vacuum.
Until now Musk had merely released plans on a proposed system running from LA to San Francisco, saying someone else can build it. Now he's obviously become bored of waiting and announced on Twitter he will be building a test Hyperloop, most likely in Texas.
