What the hyperloop may be

Business Insider ponders the possible technology that might behind the high speed rail ‘hyper loop’ system that Elon Musk has been teasing us about:

“Tesla founder Elon Musk has been teasing an exciting idea for a new form of transportation for the last year.

He calls it the ‘Hyperloop’ and he says it’s better than a bullet train. The Hyperloop would get people to Los Angeles from San Francisco in 30 minutes.
However, he’s been vague about how he’s going to make the Hyperloop a reality.

The closest to detail he’s gotten is when he said the Hyperloop is a ‘cross between a Concorde, a railgun and an air hockey table.'”
