WHAT IS THE HYPERLOOP - To quote Tomorrowland, "Have you ever wondered what would happen if all the geniuses, the artists, the scientists, the smartest and most creative people in the world decided to actually change it?…But Where?…A secret place where they can build what they are crazy enough to build…”
The Hyperloop is a revolutionary form of transportation that will transport humans and goods in capsules at close to supersonic speeds. The Hyperloop utilizes a combination of renewable energies like solar, wind, kinetic, regenerative braking and geo-thermal, producing more electricity than it consumes. Compared to other modes of transportation, it is the fastest, safest, and most environmentally friendly mode of transport.
Built on pylons, it boasts a minimal footprint and it's infrastructure allows for vertical gardening, nesting of endangered animals, and the fight of desertification through water collection and production. With its weather independency, reduced land costs and latest automation technology, as well as the digitalization of the customer experience, the Hyperloop is the perfect alternative to expensive traditional systems.
What’s truly exciting is its applications offer solutions to real problems. Bringing food, water and power to remote places has the potential to transform lives both here and abroad. The ability to link airports, expand shipping ports, and increase terminal capacity has the potential to reshape the business of transportation as we know it. These industries along with mining and distribution all stand to amplify capacity with greater speed and faster delivery times. And let’s not forget that travel efficiency has the potential to change the way we live, work and play forever.
But perhaps the most inspiring component to HTT is its unique organization. With over 520 engineers divided in 45 teams working together, across 26 countries, we truly have assembled some of the greatest minds of the 21st Century."
