Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT), one of the companies building Elon Musk's vision of the future of travel, has unveiled the material it will use to construct the project, as well as highlighting that it wants to integrate services from Uber and Lyft.
Hyperloop works by transporting a number of passengers in capsules that would be propelled by magnets at a speed of 760 miles per hour – and plans to take you from Los Angeles to San Francisco in 30 minutes.
On Tuesday, HTT showed off how its construction will use Vibranium, a material made of carbon fiber with sensors embedded in it. HTT claims it is eight times stronger than aluminum and 10 times stronger than steel alternatives. It added that the sensors can transmit critical information regarding temperature and stability wirelessly, so any issues with the capsules can be fixed.
