An ultra-fast tubular transportation system could have a similar impact on human existence to the internet, the company behind it has claimed.
Hyperloop Transportation Technologies released a video and a report updating the public on progress towards making its proposed 1,200km/h system a reality.
The idea of a low pressure tube system was first mooted 18 months ago as a solution for journeys between San Francisco and Los Angeles.
Now HTT’s latest report has claimed such a scheme could be built for under $30M/km (£18M/km), and could be replicated all over the world.
A spokesman for the company said on the recently released video: “Our aim is to connect the world like never before.
“What the internet did in the sphere of communication, Hyperloop can certainly do in the realm of transportation.”
