If you were having any doubts, leave them behind as the Hyperboop is real. Hyperloop Technologies, the company which is making Elon Musk’s Hyperloop, has released the Hyperloop intro video, showing the plant where they are building this fifth mode of transportation.
Technology entrepreneur and engineer Elon Musk’s dream project Hyperloop is under construction. The project aims to device a high-speed transportation system using a low-pressure tube. The transportation in the tunnel-train is expected to take place at a mighty speed of 800 miles/hour (1,300 km/hour).
Earlier, it sounded like a super-secret program with the best engineers trying tosave the world. However, in the Hyperloop intro video below, you can see this new plant located in Downtown Los Angeles Arts District. The research, manufacturing, and testing- everything will be done in this 55,000 square foot area and a nearby 2.5 acres facility will be used for larger hardware.
The timing of the release of the video is crucial as Hyperloop Technologies appointed former Cisco top executive Rob Lloyd as the new CEO. In the blog post, he said: “After spending 10 years as an entrepreneur, followed by 20 years growing up in a small company called Cisco that became big and changed the world, I am fired up by the opportunity to change the world again.”
