Hyperloop One - Setting up the tracks

Since my first post in 2013 things have moved up a little bit. According to this news item, the start up company Hyperloop One (not an affiliation of Elon Musk's business) has begun constructing a full-scale test track called the DevLoop in the Nevada desert. According to their one liner, Hyperloop One has promised to deliver a means of transit that offers airplane speed at bus ticket prices.

You know what, this was unveiled appropriately in a Middle East Rail Conference in Dubai.  It appears the first implementation of Hyperloop may take place connecting Dubai with Abu Dhabi. Well this is a very hopeful choice with Dubai having a lot of cash and a wide open desert. There is lot more of this news at this NBC's news site.

Here is a You Tube video :

Traffic congestion is a major, major problem and any thing to mitigate its effects such as lost time, pollution, stress at a reasonable cost is worth the effort & justifies support.

India  has teeming millions with cities congested with traffic beyond imagination and unbelievable pollution. No wonder India is looking at this technology although bringing Hyperloop India will not be easy.
