  • What if you could travel on the ground at the speed of... flight?

  • We're outside an aerospace facility in southern Spain

  • to get a first look at a hyperloop passenger pod that's aiming to do just that.

  • Two

  • One...

  • Hyperloop Transportation Technologies' first full-scale passenger capsule

  • measures 105 feet long and weighs 5 tons.

  • It's a real full-scale capsule.

  • This is the first time that we will show what a hyperloop will look like.

  • Hyperloop transport is branded as a faster, cheaper

  • and more energy-efficient way to move people and cargo.

  • This capsule is expected to fit between 28 and 40 passengers

  • and to reach speeds of up to 760 miles per hour.

  • We have the unique opportunity to build a transportation system the way you would do in 2018

  • We can rethink everything. We can question everything. And that's exactly what we're doing.

  • Hyperloop transport was a dream first envisioned by Tesla CEO Elon Musk in 2013.

  • The technology uses magnets to levitate pods and propel them through large tubes at ultra-fast speeds.

  • Imagine traveling at close to the speed of sound, cutting the travel time

  • between Los Angeles and San Francisco to around 30 minutes.

  • That's a lot faster than a flight, which takes about an hour and a half,

  • or driving, which takes about six hours.

  • Hyperloop Transportation Technologies partnered with a Spanish manufacturing and engineering company

  • to build the capsule.

  • It took a combined 26,000 hours of skilled engineering and assembly.

  • We have the engineering capacity, we have the systems,

  • the structures, we have the very high, high, high level.

  • So the interior of the capsule isn't finished yet, they didn't let any cameras inside.

  • Currently it's a black tunnel, it's waiting to be designed in the next step.

  • The company has said that design will include virtual windows.

  • The skin of the capsule is made using a material the company calls Vibranium

  • which consists of carbon fiber and embedded sensors.

  • From here, the capsule will be move to a research and development facility

  • in Toulouse, France for more assembly and testing.

  • But Hyperloop Transportation Technologies is just one of several companies in the race for superfast travel.

  • Virgin Hyperloop One has already completed successful but limited test-runs of its pods.

  • For all of the, well, hype, there are still questions about when and how exactly

  • hyperloop routes for passengers will get up and running.

  • Just think of the legal and regulatory hurdles.

  • It's going to take a little bit longer to have the final legal framework

  • but it's definitely much sooner than anybody would expect.

  • So, you know, three years and until worldwide adoption, maybe five to ten.

  • Even in the world of high-speed travel, there's still some way to go

  • before you'll be able to reach your destination on board a hyperloop.

  • Hey everyone, Elizabeth here. Thanks so much for watching.

  • Be sure to check out more of our videos over here and leave us any other ideas in the comments section.

  • Talk to you later.
