HyperLoop One Releases Images of Their Full-Scale Test Track

Hyperloop One is building its first full-scale test track, which is meant to demonstrate every aspect of its eventual first shipping Hyperloop transportation system, in the Nevada desert - and it's making good progress. But the company is finally revealing its Nevada hyperloop test site where it will (hopefully) construct the future of transportation.

As you can see from the photos, that's a big stretch of tubing, and it looks like they're actually quite far along.

When it's completed in the next few months, the full-scale structure will extend for 3 kilometres (1.86 miles), and while the test system may not carry passengers, it will give the world its first chance to see if Hyperloop can live up some pretty epic hype.

Hyperloop One, the U.S. tech start-up that is developing a high-speed transit system for the United Arab Emirates, has said that it is aiming to secure regulatory approval that will allow it to start production within the next three years.

As just a test, the Nevada hyperloop pods won't be carrying any passengers.

In the latter half of the year, however, Hyperloop One closed some major deals with rail authorities in the United Arab Emirates, which will allow the company to conduct feasibility studies for its futuristic technology around a major population center.

"As the central global transport hub, pursuing the implementation of a Hyperloop in the UAE makes sense", Lloyd said. "Tying together the Middle East region would produce greater virtual density, without congestion and pollution, spurring innovation, productivity, job growth and more powerful sharing of knowledge, labor and investment".

The firm has said it will be able to do the 100-mile journey in just 12 minutes.

In addition, to help us better understand and witness the entire length, Hyperloop One has shared a bird's-eye view of the test track as well. A Hyperloop One system would ease pressure on existing infrastructure and presents the potential for the Middle East to reinvent and transform transportation. Based on a concept first tabled by Elon Musk, the high-speed transport network could connect a host of major cities across the Middle East in less than an hour.
