Dubai to Abu Dhabi in less than 15 minutes? Yes!
It is possible to travel between Dubai and Abu Dhabi in less than 15 minutes, it was revealed by Peter Diamandis, one of the 21st century’s groundbreaking futurists.
Diamandis, founder of the nonprofit X Prize Foundation, explained his concept during the 6th du CEO Forum at the Dubai World Trade Centre on Monday.
Talking to select journalists ahead of the event, he mentioned that it was possible to travel between Dubai and Abu Dhabi in 14.9 minutes through the Hyperloop transportation system.
Hyperloop Technologies is the world’s next breakthrough in transportation, engineering unique transportation solutions worldwide for both cargo and passengers. Hyperloop is a transportation system in which a full-length tube is built between destinations, with a controlled environment inside the tube allowing people or cargo to travel at extremely fast speeds.
Full-scale and speed testing will be done next year at a three-to-four kilometre area at a number of locations, he explained. “If the UAE wants, it could be operational before 2020,” he added. Details
