Elon Musk Reveals ‘Hyperloop’ Plan, A New High-Speed Pod/Tube Transit System

‚ By 

As if he hadn’t already given the world enough, Elon Musk (the co-founder of Tesla Motors, Paypal, and the founder of SpaceX) unveiled a brand-new project yesterday dubbed The Hyperloop, aimed at solving transportation between two points of medium distance (namely San Francisco and Los Angeles).

I don’t want to ruin the awesomeness of this idea by trying to dumb it down for all of you, so instead I suggest heading over Business Insider which has laid out the project in layman’s terms. Alternatively, you could also download the full 57-page PDF that Elon uploaded to SpaceX’s website here.

What I will do, though, is show you some pretty pictures that kind of explain what’s going on.
