The hyperloop race heats up as one startup begins building a full-size passenger pod

The hyperloop race heats up as one startup begins building a full-size passenger pod Its building contractors say absolutely The HTT passenger capsule will seat between 28 and 40 people, and is being designed to travel at more than 700 miles per hour.The commercial capsule, so reminiscent of The Jetsons, will be about 100 feet long, with a 9-foot diameter and a weight of 20 tons.

SpaceX’s next Hyperloop contest will focus on one element: speed

SpaceX’s next Hyperloop contest will focus on one element: speed That’s because this one focuses on a single element: speed.“The competition will include new and returning student teams, some of which have already built and tested their pods during the first competition,” SpaceX said on its website.

Second SpaceX Hyperloop Competition To Focus On Speed

Second SpaceX Hyperloop Competition To Focus On Speed Elon Musk’s aerospace firm last week announced its second Hyperloop Pod Competition, scheduled for Aug.“Based on the high-quality submissions and overwhelming enthusiasm surrounding the first competition, SpaceX has moved forward with Hyperloop Pod Competition II,” the company said in a recent announcement.

Watch Hyperloop One ace its first full-system test inside a vacuum tube

Watch Hyperloop One ace its first full-system test inside a vacuum tube The test marks an important milestone in the development of the futuristic transportation system that can, in theory, carry travelers from Los Angeles to San Francisco in under 30 minutes.It's more impressive than the last quick test of the Hyperloop One propulsion system last year, which was even shorter — but the vacuum test was also just a first step toward the goal of 750 mph-plus speeds.

Hyperloop One travel just got a step closer to reality

Hyperloop One travel just got a step closer to reality Hyperloop One successfully tested hyperloop travel as it watched a sled swoosh inside a near-vacuum tunnel at a maximum speed of 70 mph.The company claims this is the first time anyone has conducted a fully-realized test and promises to test a real pod capable of carrying people in the near future.

Elon Musk Has Approval For NYC-DC Hyperloop

Elon Musk Has Approval For NYC-DC Hyperloop Elon Musk just tweeted that he had initial approval to construct a Hyperloop route connecting New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington DC.Total travel time from NYC to DC could be as little as 29 minutes, Musk claims.

Elon Musk Wants to Build a Hyperloop From New York City to DC

Elon Musk Wants to Build a Hyperloop From New York City to DC The Boring Company isn’t a huge priority for Musk, but if what he calls a “verbal government approval” to build a Hyperloop from New York City to DC pans out, that could change.According to Musk, the Hyperloop from NYC to DC would follow this route: New York City – Philidelphia – Baltimore – Washington DC, with a total travel time of 29 minutes.

11 Proposed Hyperloop Routes That Aren't NYC-DC

11 Proposed Hyperloop Routes That Aren't NYC-DC 3 minutes Hyperloop Midwest: 488 miles from Columbus, Ohio to Pittsburgh in 17.9 minutes Rocky Mountain Hyperloop: Anywhere on Colorado’s 360-mile front range in less than 30 minutes Colorado Hyperloop: 242 miles from Denver to Colorado Springs in 6.

Hyperloop One just hit blazing fast new record speeds

Hyperloop One just hit blazing fast new record speeds This new round of testing builds on Hyperloop One's breakthrough first full-scale run in the vacuum environment, which was widely publicized last month.The company also used a propulsion segment that was 300 meters long, 10 times longer than the first test's 30 meters.

Need for Speed: Hyperloop One Test Tops 190 MPH

Need for Speed: Hyperloop One Test Tops 190 MPH 5 times farther (1,433 feet) and three times faster (193 mph) than initial runs in May.“That’s using only 300 meters of stator for propulsion,” according to Hyperloop One co-founders Josh Giegel and Shervin Pishevar.

Hyperloop One Hits Almost 200 MPH With Demo Pod

Hyperloop One Hits Almost 200 MPH With Demo Pod A few companies have popped up since then with the aim of making the Hyperloop a reality, but Hyperloop One is currently the furthest along.In the case of Hyperloop One, it’s using magnetic levitation to eliminate friction on the track.

Look out, Hyperloop startups: Elon Musk might finally be coming for you.

Look out, Hyperloop startups: Elon Musk might finally be coming for you. Elon Musk might finally be ready to make Hyperloop, the high-speed tubular transportation tech he dreamed up back in 2013, a reality on his own terms.A Boring Company spokesman told Mashable via email that it will include Hyperloop technology in its tunnels, but stopped short of confirming what Bloomberg's source claimed.

Elon Musk May Want In on the Hyperloop Business After All

Elon Musk May Want In on the Hyperloop Business After All Four years ago, Elon Musk released a paper on a potential method of high-speed point-to-point transport.Now, that seems to be changing, and probably not in ways that are going to make any of the companies doing early Hyperloop work very happy.

China's latest bullet trains will reach a blazing 400 km/h, faster than the Hyperloop One

China's latest bullet trains will reach a blazing 400 km/h, faster than the Hyperloop One Come September 21, new bullet trains will be blazing their way across China at speeds of up to 400 km/h (248 mph).Consider this China's comeback, after a two-train collision in 2011 that killed 40 people.

Elon Musk just casually posted a photo of a Telsa car in a Boring Company tunnel

Elon Musk just casually posted a photo of a Telsa car in a Boring Company tunnel Eccentric billionaire Elon Musk caused a stir today when he posted a progress photo of the Boring Company's underground tunnel being constructed at the SpaceX headquarters just outside of Los Angeles — complete with a Tesla Model S sitting at the mouth of the tunnel.The photo revealed, finally, just how gigantic the Boring Company's tunnel actually is.

A team of German students have built the world's fastest Hyperloop pod

A team of German students have built the world's fastest Hyperloop pod A team of students from Technical University Munich  took home first prize at SpaceX's Hyperloop competition for building a test pod capable of reaching up to 201 mph.That's the fastest test-run ever, beating Hyperloop One, a venture-backed startup, whose vehicle reached 192 mph in an earlier test-run.

Elon Musk just broke a very impressive Hyperloop speed record

Elon Musk just broke a very impressive Hyperloop speed record Elon Musk is on his competitive A game right now.After holding a SpaceX Hyperloop competition last weekend, where a team of students from Technical University Munich built a test pod that hit a record-breaking 201 mph, Musk set out to see if Tesla's very own Hyperloop pusher pod could beat the freshly set achievement.

HTT Gets Thumbs Up to Build India's First Hyperloop

HTT Gets Thumbs Up to Build India's First Hyperloop According to a Memorandum of Understanding, the project will follow a public-private partnership model, with funding primarily from private investors.Before anyone can board the express tube, though, Hyperloop Transportation Technologies will launch a six-month feasibility study; starting in October, the research firm must analyze the area and determine the best possible itinerary.
