Elon Musk, founder of Tesla motors envisions a future where large magnetic levitation trains traveling at very high speeds take us from New York to Los Angeles in 45 minutes. This same technology could take you from Los Angeles to Beijing in 45 minutes. This is idea is not as far fetched you may initially think as the concept has been around since the early 1900s. Telsa is the first company to work on a functional prototype. The engineering behind the Hyperloop is similar to the tube systems banks use to take your drive through deposits. Massive vacuum tubes (completely void of air to minimize friction) mounted above and possibly underwater, combined with magnetic levitation systems would allow for frictionless travel with no chance of collision at extremely high speeds.
