Virgin Hyperloop One Reveals Lightning Fast Pod
After a private viewing for the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Prince Mohammed Bin Salman Al Saud, Virgin Founder Richard Branson has now released footage of a fully functioning Hyperloop One pod.
The video shows the pod racing through a specially constructed tunnel at incredible speed – initial reports stated Hyperloop can travel at up to speeds of 750mph.
Saudi Arabia intends to bring the ultra-modern transport system to the Kingdom as part of its 2030 vision, slashing travel time for people and cargo between logistics hub Jeddah and capital Riyadh.
The Hyperloop concept was originally devised by US-based billionaire Elon Musk, however, he ensured the concept was open-sourced, meaning several versions of Hyperloop are now in development.
