Hyperloop Plans Coming 12th of August

Keep your eyes peeled, in a few days Elon Musk is revealing his long awaited Hyperloop plans.  Intended to revolutionise travel between Los Angeles and San Francisco.  Musk claims the Hyperloop will get you from one hub to the other in 30 minutes.  On solar power.  For the cost of train ticket.
