This particular mode of transport, which looks like a cross between a capsule and a tube with seats, uses similar technology to a roller coaster. And would launch car-sized pods into airless concrete tubes.
Hyper Chariot president Matthew Modine explains:
We are aiming to bring nothing less than space travel on Earth, connecting cities and even countries in a way never before possible.
According to the specifications, the tubes will accelerate from 0 to 1,000 miles in just one minute, and will travel at 4,000 miles per hour. For optimum comfort, the seats will be similar to those in race cars.
Each capsule will carry four to six people, and will be using a form of magnetic levitation called 'maglev.'
