Shows the first passenger capsule Hyperloop Transport Technologies
More than three years have elapsed since Elon Musk presented the world a futuristic transport of the future design, dubbed Hyperloop. At first the idea seemed quite fantastic, but over time, we are getting closer and closer to the realization of the project. The technology has already passed more than one series of experiments, and just recently the company Hyperloop Transport Technologies at the ceremony in Spain introduced its first passenger capsule, which can be dispersed to 1200 kilometers per hour.
, a single passenger capsule length (which was Quintero One name) is 98.5 feet (about 30 meters), the cross-section is equal to 9 feet (2, 7 meters), weighs 20 tons and can hold it up to 40 people. According to available information, for the internal design of the capsule, there are hundreds of options, but they all look like the interiors of the sci-fi movie.
"We are considering a completely different interior concepts that go beyond the simple arrangement of seats. It will be part of one of our future updates. "- said Director of Communications Hyperloop Transport Technologies Ben Cooke.
Also, Mr. Cook has confirmed that the capsule is the toilet, so, apparently, at some point the motion will be to get up and move safely within Hyperloop capsule. Capsules can move away from the platform every 40 seconds, which will carry up to 164,000 passengers a day. After the demonstration Quintero One new capsule will be sent to France, where in 2019 will be built test track length of 1 kilometer.
Recall that Hyperloop Transportation Technologies - one of the two companies involved in the development of transport capsules. First, in addition to the launch of the capsule in France, plans to open a prototype Hyperloop road in central California length of 5 miles, and its "sister" Virgin Hyperloop One last February 2018 has also demonstrated his concept of passenger capsules.
