A revolutionary new transport network that can move goods anywhere in the world in just 48 hours is being proposed for Dubai.
BMW Designworks, the automaker's creative consultancy, partnered with Virgin Hyperloop One to give its Dubai hyperloop a full-scale prototype interior for UAE Innovation Month. The result is something you might find in a first-class airplane cabin, albeit without windows.
Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT) and the rival company Hyperloop One announced they have signed agreements with regional planning authorities in Ohio and Illinois to fund a feasibility study for what could be the first US interstate Hyperloop route.
The Hyperloop Poland team adapted its route from a 2012 feasibility study for an $8 billion high-speed rail project that was suspended by the federal government in 2014. That bullet train’s speed-to-cost ratio was deemed “dissatisfying,” but Hyperloop offers speeds 2-3 times faster than high-speed rail and can be built for two-thirds of the cost while fitting into narrower rights of way that trains cannot.
