San Francisco to Los Angeles in 35 minutes flat—that was the dream of the Hyperloop.

Back in 2013, Elon Musk introduced the world to this dream with a 60-page white paper. The paper caused a stir. The idea—a levitating, solar-power, supersonic train—was both pure geek porn and a transportation revolution in the making. It definitely captured people’s imagination.

Evacuated Tube Transport Technology (ET3) is 50 times more efficient than rail

ET3

Evacuated Tube Transport Technology

Evacuated Tube Transport Technology is magnetically levitated capsules in vacuum tubes.  Propulsion energy required is 100,000 times less than required by a car. ET3 will achieve 50 times more transportation per kWh (or ton of CO2) than electric cars or trains.  The cost is ten times less. They calculate they can build an ET3 system for about $7 million per mile. (Videos)

ET3 – Evacuated Tube Transportation

Planes, trains, and automobiles is transportation that has carried us through the 20th century, but these days, they’re old news. The transportation of the future will be more along the lines of magnetic levitation, jetpacks, and zip lines that fit in a backpack—and they could be here sooner than you think.
