Here’s a Sneak Peek at What Hyperloop Travel Will Look Like

Ready to travel 97 miles in 12 minutes? Hop in.

By The Editors

When the future looks dim, consider the Hyperloop, that pneumatic transport that zings people and packages around like checks at a drive-through banking module.

Will the future look this clean? Will it move this fast? This conveniently? No barriers. No walls. Just a couple clicks and your pod is reserved, and then you’re off, traveling the 97 miles between Dubai and Abu Dhabi in a mere 12 minutes. Forget the normal two hours it’d take by car — and that’s without traffic and stops.

That Musk and co. are over budget by about $41 million per mile makes us glad the UAE decided to go first.
