Want to get sucked into oblivion?!

Well remember those vacuum tube networks that businesses used to use to send papers across large buildings? Hyperloop is basically that, but big enough to shoot people cross-country at amazing speeds.

First, the tube is six feet wide, and is maintained as a low-pressure environment, to prevent the passenger pod from touching the tube, it’ll float slightly above it, either on a cushion of air or using magnetic levitation.

Because it doesn’t have to deal with as much air resistance, Hyperloop is expected to hit 750MPH, more than twice as fast as the Central Japan Railway’s record-breaking 366MPH speed run.
