Probably. But Elon Musk's so-called Hyperloop technology is picking up steam here in Texas.
Hyperloop One plans to soon hold human trials in Nevada for its sci-fi-like transit system: Think huge tubes that stretch over the landscape and use electric propulsion to literally blast people-filled pods over the earth.
Hyperloop One is just one of the transport companies vying make the futuristic transport system a reality.
The Hyperloop Massachusetts proposal is the shortest of 11 proposed routes around the United States, selected this week by Los Angeles-based Hyperloop One. The 11 proposals are finalists in the Hyperloop One Global Challenge which kicked off last May and drew more than 2,600 participants. This disruptive technology - conceived, developed and built in the USA - will move passengers and cargo faster, cleaner and more efficiently.
Hyperloop One's test track is complete, but it remains to be seen if it is operational. That's expected to happen in the next couple of months, and the company hopes that it goes better than its initial test, which saw a metal sled careen into a pile of sand, according to The Verge. Hyperloop One, he said, will enable broad benefits across communities and markets, support sustainable manufacturing and supply chains, ease strain on existing infrastructure and improve the way millions live and work.
Hyperloop One has been getting considerable attention outside the US, but things may be changing now that the DeveLop test track is finished. The company still has to build its first Hyperloop transportation pod.
Such a network of high-speed transport tubes is a ways off yet, however. Companies have sprung up around the technology, including Hyperloop One, which was founded after Musk's trailblazing, in 2014 by Shervin Pishevar and Brogan BamBrogan.
Anthony Foxx, the former secretary of transportation who had to develop regulations for drones and autonomous cars, drew a parallel for hyperloop with the need for regulators to work with industry to develop safety rules as the technology evolves. The company said its proposed routes include links between Los Angeles-San Diego, Miami-Orlando and Seattle-Portland.
CEO Robert Lloyd said Hyperloop will be available at two-thirds the cost of high-speed rail, adding that the feeling of acceleration in a Hyperloop would be similar to that felt in a commercial airplane.
While they idea of cutting hours off a commute in podlike travel has captured the public's imagination, hyperloop technology is most likely to be employed first as a glorified - but very fast - freight train.
