Elon Musk's Hyperloop Picks Chennai-Bengaluru Route For India Debut, 30 Minutes Will Be The Journey

Chennai to Bengaluru in 30 minutes! No, this is not a figment of the imagination or a video game, but a proposed mode of transport. A US-based company which has embarked on an ambitious project to revolutionise the way people moved from one city to another has set its eyes on Chennai
The brainchild of Elon Musk, HyperLoop One proposes to propel people in travel pods at 1,200kmph through a tube propped up on concrete pillars. The pod or train is able to achieve the speed because it floats in a vacuum inside the tunnel.

Whoa. This is amazing. I think I missed this post. The distance between Chennai to Bengaluru is 345 Kms! That's huge. Must take at least 7-8 hours to reach. Reducing it to 30 minutes is amazing. Makes me think what people born after 3 decades might think of us being surprised at cutting travel time by 1/8th. 😁 It'd be a common thing for them (well, that's the dream anyway).
