The future of transportation – where technology and vision fuse like never before – is edging ever closer. The hyperloop system is at the vanguard of this offering travel at 700mph in levitated pods that snake through terrain inside narrow tubes.
And the Hyperloop One startup is pushing forward with its plans to deliver the system. It has successfully completed the second phase of testing, with its XP-1 test pod hitting speeds of nearly 200mph at the company’s DevLoop track in the Nevada desert.
“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,” Josh Giegel and Shervin Pishevar, Co-founders of Hyperloop One, revealed in a blog.
This builds nicely on the first round of trials – carried out in May – when the target speed of 70mph was met.
