The Hyperloop can be made with today’s technology. However, there will be lots of new technology in areas like energy efficiency, development of pods and deployment of tubes. However, all of these technologies must be sustainable for the environment.
Pods speed through low-pressure—but not vacuum—tubes perched on pylons. Typically, as a pod moves through a snugly sized tube, it must push the column of air in front of it. That air would build up until it becomes unmanageably heavy—a constraint known as the Kantrowitz limit. But the Hyperloop design includes a fan at the front of the pod that pulls that air in and redirects it to the bearings, thus overcoming the Kantrowitz limit and simultaneously providing a low-friction suspension system. “He’s probably found something of a systemic sweet spot, which makes it kind of creative and interesting. It’s a physical option that really wasn’t on the table before,” says Jim Moore, a transportation engineer at the University of Southern California.
