Hyperloop on MIND & MACHINE with Matt Jones, the Senior VP of Software for Virgin Hyperloop One.
Five years ago Elon Musk wrote a white paper proposing an alternative to slow, expensive transportation between distant cities. The idea was to replace air travel and trains with a Hyperloop, a 1,000 km per hour (or 600+ mph) passenger pod shooting through a tube hundreds of mile long in a vacuum, so no air resistance – levitating in the air so it avoids any friction.
My guest today is Matt Jones, senior vice president of software at Virgin Hyperloop One, the leading developer of hyperloop technology.
With Richard Branson now as the company's Chairman, and a fully functional hyperloop segment at their Nevada development facility, Virgin Hyperloop One is close to bringing this vision to reality around the world.
We explore how the hyperloop works, and how it will transform the way we live.
