1st Hyperloop Transportation Technologies Full-Scale Project Under Construction (CleanTechnica Exclusive)

October 20th, 2017 | by Zachary Shahan

Sitting at a Hyperloop Transportation Technologies presentation here at Autonomy, it was fun listening to Chairman Bibop G. Gresta talk about transportation problems and then how hyperloops can help solve them. He's a funny guy, and he put the problems of current transportation methods into stark terms (using pictures and videos from the real world, of course)


Tesla’s Hyperloop Pod Breaks 220 MPH Threshold During Testing

August 31st, 2017 | by James Ayre

Tesla's internally developed Hyperloop pod recently surpassed the 220 mph (355 km/h) threshold during testing, according to CEO Elon Musk. Previous to this, the top-speed record for a Hyperloop design was 201 mph, some 20 mph less — achieved by the WARR team at the Hyperloop Pod Competition very recently

The concept of low- to no-pressure travel through tubes has been around for a few hundred years, but it's clearly facing a revival of inspiration lately. It continues to capture imaginations as a promising future mode of transport, but also now investment dollars. Today, the idea of achieving high-velocity travel in a controlled tube environment may have made a step forward, thanks to the startup Hyper Chariot Network

Following its earlier city-level proposals competition in Europe, Hyperloop One has now revealed the candidate shortlist produced by that competition. The shortlist includes the proposals that were/are both economically and technically feasible


Hyperloop Transportation Technologies Begins Building Full-Scale Passenger Hyperloop Capsule

March 24th, 2017 | by James Ayre

Whatever you may think about the Hyperloop idea (I remain a skeptic, personally), things do appear to be moving forward. With regard to Hyperloop Transportation Technologies, one of the companies trying to commercialize the idea, it has apparently started constructing a full-scale passenger hyperloop capsule -- following 3 years of research and development efforts
