Travel in a tube: Elon Musk’s Hyperloop to start construction in 2016

Hyperloop is looking like it might actually become a reality. Hyperloop is a highly futuristic transportation system that’s faster than an airplane. Just a few years ago no one thought it was even remotely possible.  Construction could begin on Hyperloop as 2016.

The Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT) will partner up with engineering-design firm AECOM, as well as the Swiss company Oerlikon, which specializes in vacuums – a technology that is key to the idea. The last piece of the puzzle is architectural firm Hodgetts + Fung.
