Hyperloop One, 2014–present

This is a Hyperloop One. It was designed by Virgin Hyperloop One. It is dated 2014–present. Its medium is digital prints.

Virgin Hyperloop One is prototyping an ultra-fast, on-demand, affordable, fully electric mass transportation system. It is designed to deliver airline speeds connecting cities in minutes, as if they were metro stops, for a ticket price less than the cost of gas to drive the same distance. The passenger/cargo pod’s high speeds are attained by magnetic levitation (maglev) and propulsion along an enclosed low-pressure tube. Cleaner and quieter than current mass transit, it is designed to be built on columns or tunneled to safely avoid intersections.
