The head of carmaker Tesla and part — founder of Hyperloop, released a video testing the “train of the future”. It is only 25% of the speed of the company’s plans. Video Elon Musk has posted on Instagram.
WARR Hyperloop pod run to 201 mph (324 km/h) in 0.8 mile near vacuum tube
Approximately the same picture will see the passengers on the “train of the future”, an ambitious Hyperloop project. During testing of the trains in the vacuum tube, the prototype was able to reach speeds at 324 km/h.
To achieve this speed Hyperloop took a stretch of road of 1.3 km. Of course, that every person, without exception, from what I have seen can lose consciousness too frequent flashing of lights is extremely negative affect on the psyche.
However, Musk noted that “strobe effect” is exclusively due to the fact that this is test tunnel. Ready version of the Hyperloop will not be equipped with illumination, and passengers will not experience serious congestion during the set speed.
Plans Hyperloop taking a strap speed of 1125 km/h. In the case of tacos road from Los Angeles to Manhattan would take just 4 hours. Between American cities 4 500 kilometers.
