I am very excited about some of the future projects which I keep hearing about and one of such project is the Hyper Loop. This is a conceptual idea started by Elon Musk, we all know him from Tesla ( all-electric cars).
The Hyper loop is a conceptual high-speed transportation system, incorporating reduced pressure tubes in which pressurized capsules ride on an air cushion driven by linear induction motors and air compressors.
Recently I was reading in the papers about Musk promises on Hyper loop from NY to Dc in 29 mins. People living in the tri state area would understand the time and traffic it would take to reach Washington DC and back. Hyper loop would be a big time saver.
