You might say he has ... derailed the company's plans.
Remember Brogan BamBrogan, the distinctively named CTO and co-founder of the Hyperloop One? He just left the company. Uh-oh.Read More
The Hyperloop One had its first successful test run last month, and the high speeds that magnetic propulsion can provide sure do seem like the wave of the future. Next up: traveling beneath the waves.Read More
Who's going to tell T'Challa? I call not it.
In Marvel movies and comics, vibranium is a practically indestructible metal that bends the laws of physics to its will. In real life, it doesn't exist—well, didn't exist. In a bit of marketing flair that certainly caught our eye, the Hyperloop transportation pods will be made from a material that Hyperloop Transportation Technologies is calling "vibranium." I guess in the real world, the only thing stronger than vibranium is a lawsuit from Marvel. Who knew?Read More
After their first successful test run yesterday in a Nevada desert, the Hyperloop One team has begun to make the rounds, describing the details of their high-speed transportation technology. We could all be riding on a Hyperloop transport in the next few years, if all goes according to plan.Read More
Back in 2013, Musk posited that magnetic levitation technology could be used to make a high-speed train with the capacity to travel even faster than an airplane. Today, the world got a glimpse of what this technology looks like in action, thanks to the efforts of Hyperloop One.Read More
Elon Musk worked all night on this? What a procrastinator.
Well, it's here. So here's what's going on with Elon Musk's Hyperloop scheme for building a high-speed maglev transit system, which he calls "a new mode of transport – a fifth mode after planes, trains, cars, and boats."Read More
The Internet isn't a series of tubes, but Hyperloop probably is.
PayPal, Tesla, and SpaceX founder Elon Musk is going to lay out his latest futurist idea today at 1:30 PDT (4:30 Eastern). It's called the Hyperloop, and it's a transit system that can go between San Francisco to Los Angeles in only 30 minutes using magnetic levitation and Futurama-esque vacuum tubes.Read More
So now he finally has time to make an Iron Man suit, yeah?
Real-life Tony Stark wannabe Elon Musk has been getting us excited about Tesla motors, space elevators, and privately funded shuttle flights for years now. His latest innovation, the Hyperloop, is a bullet train-like vehicle that can supposedly get you from San Francisco to Los Angeles in only 30 minutes -- and today he finally tweeted that he'll be releasing the alpha designs for this new project on August 12th. Engineer and tech fiends, you'd best start preparing yourselves now. Maybe take a long weekend off from work so you can spend all your time pouring over them.Read More
