Elon Musk's new 5th form of transportation. The Hyperloop.

All That We Know About Musk's Hyperloop: The Infographic


http://jalopnik.com/all-that-we-know...hic-1066973247



As we've all heard by now Elon Musk, un-contented with running an electric car company and a spaceship company, will be announcing plans for a 30-minute round trip LA to SF transit system. Luckily, someone has shared this lovely infographic with us showing everything we know so far.

And what we know so far isn't really all that much: Musk says it's not a tube with a pure vacuum in it, it could be powered entirely by solar panels and even generate electricity, and it's sort of a "cross between a Concorde and a railgun and an air hockey table," which coincidentally is exactly what my drawings for my future home's rec room included back when I was six.

The actual details should be revealed on Monday, so those of you creating scale models in your backyards shouldn't have to wait too much longer. And while Musk now says he's too busy to build it himself (come on! Just skip your Tuesday night hot yoga class, man) I'm still hoping this thing actually will get built, so I can finally get looked down upon by San Franciscans in 30 minutes instead of the usual 5 hours by car.

Info graphic is huge but worth expanding and checking out.

It will generate more power than it consumes, eh?

I would be more skeptical...as in...not even give it a second thought if it were from most anyone else.

Will be interesting to learn more though for sure.

I think its getting at that the 'track' can be full of solar panels and act as a power plant in its own right, part of the power generated will be used to run the loop, part will be left over to run other things.

I'm impressed by the 1972 Rand proposal for a 14,000 mph system that connects New York with Los Angeles with Bovina, Texas.

Unless he's come up with a new and greatly more efficient PV, I just don't see that being even remotely close to a possibility.

This summer I rode the high speed train from Hangzhou to Shanghai. If I didn't know better, I would have guessed we were going maybe 80 mph. The perception of speed isn't very intense.
