Using a “passive” levitating system, Hyperloop Transportation Technologies, has found a safe way to travel at 760 mph. The ultra-fast rail system is similar to the Maglev train in Asia, but should be cheaper to install and operate. The pod will also be able to charge automatically harnessing energy caused by breaking.
