Hyperloop One prototype hit 400 MPH in a desert test
,
Hyperloop One has been successfully tested in Nevada desert. This new type of transportation was able to hit 400 MPH on a testing track. For now, it was only open-air test focused on the propulsion system of the vehicle.
Hyperloop is based on the idea of Elon Musk. He has released the project and it is developed by two companies Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT) and Hyperloop Technologies now. Because of a significant similarity between these two names, Hyperloop Technologies was renamed to Hyperloop One. This company has successfully tested the prototype in Nevada desert.
