A full-size Hyperloop capsule designed to carry passengers at 1,000 kilometres per hour has been unveiled.

It was unveiled in Puerto de Santa Maria, Spain, very close to where it was constructed at the aerospace facilities of Airtificial, a partner of HyperloopTT.

Dubbed an "airplane without wings," the Hyperloop's aim is to permanently disrupt how we travel long distances. A journey from Los Angeles to Las Vegas can now take nothing more than 20 minutes.

At a length of 32 metres, the Hyperloop capsule would form part of a longer train that could in record time speed across a country.

The first full-scale Hyperloop capsule is made out of dual-layer smart composite material and is named "Quintero One".

Responding to questions concerning safety, the HyperloopTT team stressed the capsule's security. They also laid emphasis on the new material it's made from and the protective double-layer.

"Today we have unveiled a new type of transportation vessel built with an industry high percentage of composite, which makes the Hyperloop capsule perhaps the safest transportation vehicle in the world," said Rafael Contreras, the company's co-founder and chairman.

"In just five years we have solved and improved upon all of the technology needed for Hyperloop with our new levitation system, vacuum pumps, batteries, and smart composites," CEO Dirk Ahlborn added.

"This capsule will be a part of one of the most efficient transportation systems ever made."

This looks like a glorified coffin.

Let them use it for a couple of years, and if it does not kill them like a bunch of flies,then can then start selling it to Africans.

The last time they gave us something like this,they called it Peugeot J5. We are yet to fully get the statistics of how many Nigerians that flying coffin called J5 killed.

bravo...

All our mechanical and electrical engineering who have phd and the rest...

When will we start seeing Nigerian made tech?

Even innoson who I respect his initiative is not really manufacturing part rather they assemble Chinese vehicles but brand them

I am not hating I am just trying to challenge our imagination to join the tech race... Let's not only be consumers

"1000 kilometers per hour"!!!! Where am i rushing to? Ordinary 120km per hour inside car dey cut my mind, to put this in perspective, Portharcourt to Lagos is 458km and normally a 5-7 hours journey so with this new technology we can do Portharcourt to Lagos in less than 30mins.......... angry

If you were thinking, that with the way technology is advancing, modern forms of planes won't be invented, then you were joking.
Very soon, even houses will be mobile. [/b]
