Pod People

Cars, buses, trains—gone.

Okay, they’re still here, but not for long.

Virgin Hyperloop wants to get you there—anywhere, everywhere—faster, much faster. From Gatwick to Heathrow in four minutes, from Dubai to Abu Dhabi in twelve. That kind of faster.

How?

No problem. They’ll just pop you into a pod inside a vacuum tube, and blast away at 1000 km/h.

A futuristic transport system? Definitely, but the future is closer than you think.

Virgin Hyperloop has completed its first passenger journey. Meet Sara Luchian and Josh Giegel—pod people.

To quote Sara, “It’s an exhilarating ride.” Smooth with no roller-coaster effects, meaning neither she nor Josh got sick. Good to know.

One not so small problem?

The vacuum tube sits on a track. Space has to be found and tracks have to be built for each trip. Lots and lots of track.

You didn’t think the future would be easy, did you?
