Looks like Colorado…
It would be interesting to make a team or constellation of companies that would pitch together to make the hyperloop.
I would imagine that the components of the Hyperloop would be made locally, perhaps the only thing from out of state would be high tech computers.
But could everything be made in Colorado?
I imagine so.
The top resources that are required are cement for the arches and tube, the pods, and solar panels. Colorado already makes spacecraft, software, and large scale infrastructure projects (DIA, rapid transit projects) and not to mention solar renewables. Colorado has these industries and manufacturers in spades. Also, one more thing…
@BlakeA23 Thanks Blake, great blog. I agree, there’s no reason the hyperloop should be just a California thing.
