A 12-minute ride from Dubai to Abu Dhabi. Excited? #Hyperloop

Dubai here is an exciting news for everyone. The futuristic travel system, #Hyperloop One, has agreed to construct an ultra-fast traveling mechanism that would allow passengers to travel from Dubai to Abu Dhabi in around 12 minutes, a ride which usually takes around 90 minutes. According to the company analysis, almost 25 billion passengers will be able to travel in a year. Around 67,000 commuters will use this mode of transport on a daily basis, which is around 2,800 people per hour.

So, what exactly is this supersonic transport link all about?

The Hyperloop will revolutionize mass transit, cut-down travel time on land and also help in reducing environmental damage. The #Hyperloop One electromagnetic technology will allow pods without wheels to travel at high-speed through low-pressure transit tubes. For propulsion, magnetic accelerators will be planted along the length of the tube, propelling the pods forward and will cut down friction.  The tubes would house a low-pressure environment, which will surrounding the pod with a cushion of air that permits the pod to move safely at such high speeds, like a puck gliding over an air hockey table.

Sparked by Elon Musk's vision, the #Hyperloop One is the world's first hi-tech transportation concept that would eliminate friction and run on magnetic levitation. This technology will allow passengers to slash travel time and provide more safety compare to airplanes.
