Dubai and Abu Dhabi are now just a stone’s throw away from each other. A high-speed system, dubbed the ‘Hyperloop One’, will link the UAE capital with Dubai and drastically shorten the travel time between two cities. Through air-cushioned pods speeding through a semi-vacuumed tube, the system will revolutionize the way people travel, allowing UAE passengers to traverse a 150-kilometre distance in a matter of minutes.
Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) Ideas released a snippet of the design and function of the Hyperloop, as a trailer to what the future has to see. The official launch of HyperloopOne will take place on the 7th of November 2016.
“We are in a new time now where you can develop a new transportation system in very few years and change the world,” said Jacob Lange, partner of BIG, the team working on the design of the project. “Making the Hyperloop here would be sort of a natural step in the evolution of this place, the city and the region” added Lange.
