Although we're yet to see a Hyperloop system hit its promised subsonic speeds, it is full steam ahead when it comes to route-planning and feasibility studies.
Elon Musk's Boring Company started its initial digging on SpaceX property in Hawthorne, California, so it comes as no surprise that the venture might find its way to the Tesla factory in Fremont.
It's really just a collection of existing transportation and industrial technologies. It's a chimera, part elevated structure, metal tube, bullet train, pressure vessel, and vacuum system, all smooshed together. The challenge is integrating them
Within the next two weeks, the White House could unveil an infrastructure proposal.
Maryland has given transportation pioneer Elon Musk permission to dig tunnels for the high-speed, underground transit system known as a hyperloop that Musk wants to build between New York and Washington.
Despite recent progress on Elon Musk's radical Hyperloop system, tests have so far fallen short of the 700 miles per hour it's said to achieve.
As the final bolt locked the circular metal door into place at the end of the nearly mile-long steel tube, the two dozen members of the WARR Hyperloop team, from the Technical University of Munich, jostled to find shade under a canopy.
Although Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has said on numerous occasions that he has no plans to build a hyperloop -- even though it was his idea initially -- now it seems he's changed his mind.
The Boring Company released a statement following Musk's tweets saying its talks with officials should lead to breaking ground on a tunnel "later this year."
Considering that just four years ago it was an idea cooked up by a busy billionaire in his spare time, today the Hyperloop is gaining serious traction in all corners of the globe.
