So will hyperloop travel in 2030

No one knows yet for sure whether hyperloop will be a revolution in long-distance transport or an unrealistic idea in practice. But the first steps are already taking place, with Virgin's first manned hyperloop journey taking place a few weeks ago.

Don't you know what Hyperloop is? It is a new means of transport, similar to a train, that travels inside vacuum tubes. Because there is no resistance it can reach never-before-seen speeds of more than 1,000 km/h.

It is a technology developed by Elon Musk and SpaceX,but in free hardware format, and that is why it is being taken advantage of by other companies such as the British Virgin. It was the first to complete a manned trip, and now it shows us what it will be like to travel on Hyperloop in 2030, from when we arrived at the station until we reached our destination:

Virgin has hired different companies, such as BIG, to design passenger stations and carriages.

As we see in the video everything is very futuristic, with a design based on the tubes, the white and clear walls, and the curved lines.

The interior of the wagons surprises by the use of armchairs for two people, instead of individual seats. They also use materials such as wood.

One of the problems facing Hyperloop is that travelers are inside a vacuum-closed tube, i.e. there are no windows. That's why the interior rooms are brightly lit, and on almost every wall, seating and glass there are LED screens or texts that show information or images, to reduce the feeling of claustrophobia.

The video also shows us where the Hyperloop tubes will circulate. Most of the time they will travel underground and even under the sea, but in some sections, they will move a few meters above the ground.

It is a revolutionary proposal that will allow things like traveling from Madrid to Barcelona in 20minutes, or you cross big cities in what you look at a couple of messages from a mobile.

But as it is in the video, it is a project that demands a lot of money and a lot of infrastructure. It won't be easy to get it going. Can we really use it by 2030?
