The technology of Hyperloop One puts passengers and cargo into a pod with gradual acceleration by electric propulsion through a low-pressure tube. Hyperloop One is progressing the proof of concept work in Nevada at an incredible pace. Mexico City-Guadalajara (Mexico), and Toronto-Montreal Colorado Department of Transportation (Canada) are those routes. "The Hyperloop technology could directly align with our goals of improving mobility and safety in Colorado, and we have been encouraged by the continued progress the technology is taking".

The Hyperloop has been spreading its hypergospel on the waters for several years now: "feasibility studies" have been executed in Moscow, London, Switzerland-and between Finland and Stockholm, where a three-hundred mile miracle loop would end up costing about, oh, $21 billion. Initially, there were teams from over 100 countries and there are still 11 other finalists that the company's experts will also be working with as development of Hyperloop continues.

The nine other winning entries include four in the United States, two in each of the United Kingdom and India, and one in Mexico. That's the long and short and looped of it. If private investors aren't biting, then the public ones will. No astonishment there.

The company, Hyperloop One, announced the finalists on Thursday, and they span the globe.

Pods would run through tubes, much like an above-ground subway system, and use magnetic levitation to glide at speeds faster than airlines due to extremely low aerodynamic drag inside the tube. The company will now commit business and engineering resources and work with each of the winning teams/routes to determine their commercial viability. The combined distance of these routes amounts to 6,628 km.

A futuristic, hyper fast transportation system may soon be coming to Columbus, after the city was chosen as one of 10 locations across the world that won the Hyperloop One Global Challenge.

"Our Midwest Connect proposal fulfills a need for faster surface transportation options in the Midwest and strengthens connections and economic opportunities between the growing, tech-savvy regions of Columbus and Pittsburgh with the global power of Chicago".

It announced the winners of its challenge today and two Indian companies, Hyperloop India and AECOM India made it to the list.

Initial plans and idea for the Hyperloop system were developed by Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk in 2013.
