Futuristic 750 Mph Hyperloop Trains to Get Test Tracks in California

A futuristic "Hyperloop" high-speed transport system that will relocate its passengers in the blink of an eye, has just taken another big stride towards reality.

Hyperloop Transportation Technologies Inc. has signed a deal with landowners in central California aimed at building the world's first Hyperloop five-mile test track.

The Hyperloop transit system, initially proposed in 2013 by Tesla CEO Elon Musk, is meant to shuttle passengers between Los Angeles and San Francisco in special pods at speeds exceeding 750 mph (1,200 km/h).

The idea, that has already gone viral, is that passenger capsules will move inside tubes under a partial vacuum. These pods will be accelerated to high speeds by a system of magnets and fans, resting on a cushion of air. The Hyperloop infrastructure will be powered by environmental friendly solar panels.

Currently, magnetically levitated trains, which are in operation in Shanghai and Tokyo, can travel at a speed of 310 mph (500 km/h). While these trains use magnets to produce lift and propulsion, the Hyperloop would rely on compressed air for lift and magnets for propulsion.
