Last month, saw the first successful trial of the Hyperloop, in the Nevada desert. Although the first trial only reached 70 miles per hour, as opposed to the reported target of 760 miles per hour, it does bode well for the future.
Another exciting announcement, was the potential routes of London to Edinburgh, Cardiff to Glasgow, and Liverpool to Glasgow.
The high-speed Hyperloop has completed its first successful test, laying the foundations for a transport system that could cut the 424-mile journey from London to Edinburgh to 50 minutes. Hyperloop One has revealed it completed a test with its first prototype of the radical system, which could eventually feature pods propelled through a vacuum at speeds of up to 760 miles per hour, back in May.
