Travelling at faster-than-airline speed? It might be the (very) near future with Hyperloop One. This new transportation system uses electric propulsion to accelerate a passenger or cargo vehicle through a tube in a low pressure environment, as invented by Elon Musk. Alan James from Hyperloop One will present this new mode of transportation, explains what the company will be testing in the beginning of 2017 and questions if their quest to test the system ‘for real’ will lead to the Netherlands. Students of TU Delft and TU Twente will demonstrate their ideas for the worldwide student competition.
