Hyperloop One Eyes India
Los Angeles-based Hyperloop One, the Hyperloop developer led by Rob Lloyd and Shervin Pishevar, is lobbying for deployment of its technology in India, in a widely publicized meeting with Indian transportation officials on Tuesday. The Hyperloop One "Vision For India" event claimed its technology could be used to "reinvent and transform transportation in India", by connecting its cities faster than air travel. India's rail systems are notoriously overloaded and crowded, with many photos of passengers packed onto, and on top of crowded rail lines.
