If you haven’t heard of Hyperloop One yet, prepare to become very familiar with the concept. With plans set to be unveiled on November 7th, this high-transport speed system could soon link Dubai with Abu Dhabi, two cities that are over 150 kilometers apart from one another. The best part? Hyperloop One promises to transport travelers between the emirates in less than 15 minutes. This breakthrough technology is the original vision of the founder of Tesla Motors and Paypal, Elon Musk, and is already being referred to as the closest thing to modern tele-transportation. In this video, watch as Bjarke Ingels from BIG shares a sneak peek of the project’s design ahead of the official launch.
To put things in perspective, we’ve compiled five of the things that would take longer than going from Dubai to Abu Dhabi once Hyperloop One is built.
