Is Elon Musk's Hyperloop Design In Our Near Future?
~ Elon Musk
"I don't spend my time pontificating about high-concept things; I spend my time solving engineering and manufacturing problems."
The Real Iron Man
There are many critics out there who have likened futuristic technology guru Elon Musk to the fictional character of 'Iron Man', Tony Stark.
Ridiculous, you say?
Not so fast.
Let's give Musk some merit.
As the founder of major companies such as Tesla Motors and SpaceX, this entreprenerial magnate financed his visions by selling off his lucrative holding, the E-Commerce giant, Pay Pal.
There are many people within the technology world excited about the news of Musk's futuristic design of the Hyperloop. Though I'm not a Techno groupie, I'm definitely estatic about this out of world phenominal idea.
Imagine ... a travel system that would jettison you across the United States, the depature Los Angeles and the Destination, New York City in as little as forty-five minutes.
Impossible, you say?
Again, not so fast.

The Hyperloop is a fifth proposed mode of transportation, which would power super high-speeds, running off efficient energy means, and providing the safest form of travel when in comparison to other types of travel which involve chance and human error.
How does it work?
The Hyperloop is based on a tunnel-like, vacuum design, which would resemble a cross between the elements of a super-sonic Concorde, a high-powered railgun, and an air-hockey table.
Let's theorize about acoustic levitation:
There is a possibility withstanding today, as per the greatest minds in research that shaped objects can travel by way of acoustic waves, which when magnified by the right frequency and enough volume of power, an object could levitate. The system is attached to a sound wave, which is charged by a good deal of drag caused by air density. Once the amplitude rises, the air density increases while relative air density drops, causing a suspended object to dispel in adiabatic flight.
In relation to the Hyperloop theory, expansive solar panels could charge the loop thereby powering and storing continuous acoustic waves within the vacuum system.

What the Critics Say
Some critics say that Elon Musk is smoking way too much mile-high dope, envisioning nothing more than a pipe-dream.
I would have to argue with those nay-sayers.
So far, everything that Elon Musk has touched turns into a gold-mine. Though he may seem over-confidant, and zealous in his approach, let's do remember he does have a brilliant mind and many financial successes. Even though there may be many obstacles to this scheme, like kinks in engineering, financing, and political pitfalls, the future is still very open to new ideas, and this one is very plausible given the significant amount of research that has been given to back up this incredible idea.
All I can say is ...
Go Elon go!
