Futuristic Transportation Already Testing – Hyperloop One is making Leaps of Speed!

Friday, August 4th, 2017

Nowadays the most common forms of transportation are cars, buses, trains, airplanes, and even boats. We tend to know the safety, reliability, and efficiency of using these vessels. They have been a part of society for many, many years. By using these vessels, we have learned to deal with traffic that causes delays in motor vehicle transportation, airplanes that get delayed for various unforeseen reasons, and boats that also run late due to inclement weather and other unforeseen circumstances. We have begun to understand and compromise in order to accommodate life’s unknowns that tend to come up.

What if there was another method of transportation that could transport passengers almost as fast as an airplane without hesitation due to the weather or delayed due to traffic? Would you be willing to try it out and make it a part of your daily transportation routine? Well, the people at Hyperloop One believe they have the answer and they have been testing their resolve with the testing of Hyperloop One.

 

Many people wonder what consists of a Hyperloop.  Well it’s an environmentally friendly and efficient new way of transportation.  Many depictions of a hyperloop were in James Bond “The Living Daylights” and “The Polar Express”. Now the dream of the Hyperloop has been brought to life by a company called by the same name “Hyperloop One”. Hyperloop One has begun testing their version of the Hyperloop in Nevada, just north of Las Vegas. Hyperloop One is now on it’s way to getting this new mode of transportation on the market as soon as they can complete their testing to show its ability to not only transport safely, but also faster than any other mode of transportation and equal to that of an airplane, but without the high altitudes.

Hyperloop One anticipates at the peak of the Hyperloop introduction into society, they are anticipating speeds at the speed of sound or 750 miles per hour. The two tests in the desert showed promising. The first test conducted showed the pod tapping out at 2Gs of acceleration and a top speed of 70 Mph. The second test, the company published a video showing the pod tapping out at 192 Mph to give an idea of the direction it is heading towards getting faster and faster in its journey towards the speed of sound.

The mechanics behind the Hyperloop is the Hyperloop One is composed of a 1 passenger pod, which is 28 feet that is composed of aluminum and fiber for its outer shell. The pod was able to reach the top speed of 192 miles per hour in a mere 5 seconds and covering 300 feet before slowing down. Hyperloop one is powered by an electric propulsion system. The pod is pulled along a low-pressure tube by magnetic accelerators which push the pod along the tubes. This system gives the pod its ability to move quickly and slow down equally the same. To deal with air pressure buildup in the front of the pod, the team of Hyperloop One has added air compressors at the front of the pod which moves the air to the rear, while helping to keep the pod aloft by using the air displacement. This new technology could turn a 6 hr trip into a 35 min ride in the Hyperloop.

 

This new mode of transportation is more efficient than conventional rails, water, air, and roads that the world has grown accustomed to using. More overly it is environmentally friendly with zero emissions, faster, and does not use any oil that we are so heavily dependent on currently.  On top of using electric power, the Hyperloop would also be equipped with solar panels which will distribute solar energy making it a low electric energy consumer.

First Flying Car? Myth or Truth? AeroMobil 3.0 says Truth!

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

AeroMobil 1

Flying cars? Ok, so who has been watching too many “Back To The Future” reruns?  Yes, flying cars is no longer a mystery or something thought up in some sci-fi film. Flying cars are finally here. The latest introduction of the AeroMobil 3.0 seems to be the trendsetting leader with seamless integration between road and air. This vehicle is changing the way how manufacturers and aeronautics look at the coalition of flying your car to your destination or driving to complete your journey without any wait or excessive plane fares.

Who said that traffic jams don’t have a solution? Not more roads is the solution, but taking your car to the air and flying to your destination. Although the AeroMobile 3.0 only fits two people at a time, what it lacks in passenger capacity, it makes up for in specs and usability.   When the AeroMobil 3.0 is in car mode, it can top off at 100mph.  As a an airplane, the vehicle can get to top speeds of 124mph.  As far as economizing, the vehicle has a traveling distance of up to 540 miles when driving.  The wing span is 27 feet and is 19.7 feet in length.

 

 

 

 

The company states that it is gearing sales mainly towards developing markets which may not have much roads, highways, or airports as part of their infrastructure.   Even though its maiden flight made the Vienna Pioneers Festival in Austria a buzz, it is not yet ready for full blown production.  However, once it is ready for production, the only thing a person needs is $200,000-$300,000 plus a pilot’s license. Once those key requirements are in order, then you can be first in line to receive your own AeroMobil 3.0.
