The first full-size Hyperloop capsule designed to carry passengers at 1,000 kilometers per hour (620 mph) was unveiled Tuesday, offering a glimpse at what could be the future of travel. It’s designed to transport people through low-pressure steel tubes at speeds to match a typical passenger aircraft. Hyperloop Transportation Technologies, a US start-up, hopes its new full-size prototype capsule puts it ahead in the game.
