Hyperloop as a concept is technically viable. Not talking if actual implementations will make any sense. This BS is straight is out of Robert A. Heinlein book Starman Jones.

Turns out it wasn't even his idea, it appeared earlier.

Nice find on those vintage ones.
One would assume that one century should be long enough to put those stupid ideas to a rest.

(From a technology view, I wonder how many Teslas those rings need to generate to keep that flying town in the air, considering the huge gaps and little area. Probably implodes and generates a local black hole...)

Removing the “r” from “Hyperloop” results in “Hypeloop” - the result they wanted from the media.
