Elon Musk, who first put forward the Hyperloop concept in 2013, described the revolutionary transport as “a cross between a Concorde, a railgun and an air hockey table”.

It will involve passengers travelling in pods levitating inside massive tubes, surrounded by a cushion of air.

This cushion, along with the reduced air pressure inside the tubes, drastically lowers friction and allows pods to travel at immensely high speeds in safety – similar to how a puck glides in a game of air hockey.
