Hyperloop is a proposed plan to transport people or cargo between cities at near-supersonic speed in vacuum-sealed pods.

The technology is just a pipedream at the moment, with rival companies Hyperloop One and Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT)at the forefront of developments.
While Hyperloop One has already started construction on an impressive test track built in the middle of the Nevada desert, HTT is focusing on constructing the pods.
