We Could Soon Be Traveling By Hyperloop

Elon Musk first discussed the concept of Hyperloop in 2012. Since then, he has shared detailed plans for the transportation system, which could theoretically hit a top speed of 760 mph (1,220 km/h). Two companies have plans to develop Hyperloop, and one, Hyperloop Technologies Inc., has said that there will be an operational Hyperloop somewhere in the world by 2020. The system would shoot windowless "pods" through tubes, and Musk has described it as "a cross between a Concorde, a rail gun...and an air hockey table."
