Hyperloop One's full-scale test track

The so-called ‘DevLoop’ site is under construction currently, and the company released the first images and video of its progress on Tuesday morning. As you can see from the photos, that’s a big stretch of tubing, and it looks like they’re actually quite far along.

The Making of the Hyperloop - Episode 5

A project that has been worked on for well over a year, a dream that may become a reality – all coming down to one weekend in January. Discover the technology powering the hyperloop:

Hyperloop One Test Track

This is the Hyperloop One test track just north of Las Vegas, NV. I spotted it on a drive and could not resist getting some video of this interesting project. The Hyperloop is a pneumatic tube for humans. Much like the ones businesses used decades ago to move mail around a large office building. It is not clear how humans would get rescued in the case of a sudden repressurization of the tube or blockage after an earthquake. Hopefully they have a plan for that.

Hyperloop One ultra high speed electric transport system completes 3rd test

Virgin Hyperloop One has developed the first system that makes possible for an electric vehicle to travel at super high speed along a tube.

Yesterday the company and the Government of Maharastra signed the first Hyperloop One project for India linking Pune and Mumbai .

Once operative, the Hyperloop route is expected to cut transport time between Mumbai and Pune from 2.5 hours to just 25 minutes. There are also benefits estimated at $55 Bn over a 30 years period and green gas cuts calculated at 150,000 tons anually thanks to the first Hyperloop route in India.

The agreement signed in India is the latest in a series of projects for testing and building Hyperloopo routes all over the world.

For example, DP World signed an agreement to study a Hyperloop route to improve Jebel Ali Port's efficiency, profitability abd sustainability using thsi kind of high speed transport system.

Then came Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) agreement to evaluate a Hyperloop One link between Dubai and Abu Dhabi reducing transport time between both cities from 90 minutes to 12 minutes in November 2016.

Hyperloop One and the Colorado Department of Transportation supported by AECOM enter into a public-provate partnership that will begin a feasibility study in Colorado (USA)in September 2017. In October 2017 Hyperloop One and Virgin Group enter into a strategical partnership with Virgin investing in the tech company.

Hyperloop completed the third phase of testing for its transport system in December 2017.

The Hyperloop Is Finally Becoming a Reality

Hyperloop One's 500 meter test tunnel was recently finished in the Nevada desert.


Hyperloop One: Phase 2 testing is complete! (07/29/2017)

Las Vegas, Nevada

In the small hours of Saturday, July 29 an exhausted and adrenaline-fueled team from Hyperloop One celebrated another significant milestone, completing the second phase of testing our high-speed Hyperloop pod inside our DevLoop tube north of Las Vegas.
By the last run, after almost a week of trials, we had logged more time working with full-scale Hyperloop technology than anyone on the planet.

Farther and faster was our mantra for this phase, and our XP-1 test pod went 4.5 times farther and three times faster than our initial runs in May. The XP-1 went as fast as 310 km per hour (190 mph) and reached a maximum distance of 437 meters (1,433 feet) in DevLoop.

That’s using only 300 meters of stator for propulsion. With an additional 2,000 meters of stator, we would have hit 1,100 km per hour or 700 mph. Hyperloop One co-founders said.

#hyperloop #tech #future #train #speed Virgin Hyperloop One

Virgin Hyperloop One (formerly Hyperloop Technologies and Hyperloop One) is an Americantransportation technology company that works to commercialize the high-speed technology concept called Hyperloop. The company was established on June 1, 2014 and reorganized and renamed on October 12, 2017. Hyperloop systems are intended to move passengers and/or cargo at airline speeds at a fraction of the cost of air travel. The concept of Hyperloop transportation was first introduced by Elon Musk on August 12, 2013. The planned route runs from Los Angeles, California to Las Vegas, Nevada.

The original Hyperloop concept is proposed to use a linear electric motor to accelerate and decelerate an electromagnetically levitated pod through a low-pressure tube. The vehicle would glide silently for miles at speeds up to 760 mph (1223.1 km/h) with very low turbulence The system is proposed to be entirely autonomous, quiet, direct-to-destination and on-demand. Additionally, as Hyperloop is proposed to be built on columns or tunneled underground, this could eliminate the dangers of at-grade crossings and require smaller rights of way than high-speed rail or a highway. Virgin Hyperloop One has made substantive technical changes to Musk's initial proposal and chose not to pursue the Los Angeles–to–San Francisconotional route that Musk envisioned in his 2013 alpha-design white paper.

The company had raised $295 million on December 18, 2017 and demonstrated a form of propulsion technology on May 11, 2016 at its test site in North Las Vegas. Hyperloop One has completed a 500-meter Development Loop (DevLoop) and on May 12, 2017, held its first full-scale Hyperloop test. The test combined Hyperloop components including vacuum, propulsion, levitation, sled, control systems, tube and structures. As of May 2019, the company had raised $400 million.

Its publicly stated goal is to provide a fully operational Hyperloop system by 2021

Hyperloop Hotel - Futuristic Concept Builds on Elon Musk’s high-speed transport tunnel


When you go out of town, you usually need to buy a few nights at a hotel in addition to a plane, train, or bus ticket.

Brandan Siebrecht, a graduate architecture student at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, wants to combine these components into one experience. He designed what he calls the “ Hyperloop Hotel,” a system that would feature a transit system and 13 hotels in different cities throughout the United States.

Siebrecht is the student winner of this year’s Radical Innovation Award , a competition for imaginative hotel designs. In June, a jury of seven hotel investors, developers, and architects selected Driftscape as the one of two finalists out of over 65 submissions from 24 countries.

The futuristic concept would eliminate the need to buy separate transit tickets for most of the largest cities in the US. It calls for hotels in 13 locations — Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Denver, Sante Fe, Austin, Chicago, Nashville, Washington DC, New York City, and Boston — which would all be connected by a “Hyperloop system.”

The design was inspired by DevLoop, a real test track for Hyperloop One being developed north of Las Vegas. A concept first introduced by Tesla CEO Elon Musk in 2013, a hyperloop is a mode of transportation that would propel a pod-like vehicle through a reduced-pressure tube. Hyperloop One wants the system to be energy-efficient, autonomous, and quicker than a plane.
Though the project is still conceptual and has experienced delays, the start-up has said its goal is to deliver a fully operational system by 2020.


For a flat fee of $1200, Hyperloop Hotel guests would be able to zoom quickly between the network of cities, all while never leaving their room, Siebrecht tells Business Insider. He hasn’t estimated what each night would cost yet.

Siebrecht said, Guests would be able to travel to any hotel destination within the network and even visit multiple destinations in a single day.

The size of the modular hotels, which Siebrecht estimates would cost around $10 million each to build, would depend on the location. Hotels in dense cities would likely have smaller footprints than ones in less dense areas.

Guest suites would be made of re-purposed shipping containers that Siebrecht says would be “outfitted for luxury.” Each would include an office, a living room with a flatscreen TV, a bedroom, and a bathroom.

There are no concrete plans to build the first Hyperloop Hotel, since the technology and infrastructure it would require doesn’t actually exist.
Siebrecht believes construction of his hotel concept could be feasible within the next five to 10 years.

“I believe the Hyperloop One is the next big innovation in transportation in the United States and possibly the world,” he said. “I wanted to explore ways in which this technology could transform the overall travel experience and hospitality.
