Inside Dubai-Abu Dhabi’s Hyperloop passenger pods

An ultra-high-speed train that travels like a jet would significantly cut travel time between Dubai and Abu Dhabi to just about 12 minutes, from the current 90 minutes.

This innovation, using a futuristic mode of vacuum tube-based transport, would lead to an estimated savings of $800 million in lost working hours, according to proponents.

On Saturday, the Dubai Media Office tweeted a video of what it stated was the first pod prototype for Dubai’s proposed Hyperloop — which resembles a train but travels at the speed of a jet aircraft, zooming up to 1,200 kph (about 745 mph).

In April, the Dubai-based ports operator DP World announced it would formally partner with Virgin Hyperloop One to build ultra high-speed cargo delivery systems around the world.
