TeslaMondo is not going to cover the Hyperloop unless it affects Tesla. Yesterday’s proof of concept run may at least reinforce the notion of Tesla as “future transportation” since both Tesla and the Hyperloop are silent, quick and smokeless. Plus, it seems all coverage of the Hyperloop credits that billionaire guy for the inspiration.
Tesla made batteries exciting. Can Hyperloop do the same for magnets? Probably. Science professors rejoice, for real-world relevance, the most potent but most elusive educational tool, is here.
TeslaMondo’s unscientific poll of youngsters suggests they’re not quite ready to strap themselves to such a device. Some needed to be reassured that the future is very, very far away.
