Hyperloop and flying cars will fight for the future of transportation

Technogiant want to reconsider the methods of our movement in the coming decades, but which one will win? Last week Elon Musk and Uber’s CEO Dara Khosrowshahi talked on Twitter for the topic of what flying cars will be a breakthrough in transportation. Khosrowshahi said that it is not necessary to dig tunnels for the Hyperloop, as Musk is. Recall, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX wants to launch passengers in beans in vacuum tubes at speeds of hundreds of kilometers per hour.

Musk said that the result of the ubiquity of flying cars will be noise and ruffle in the eyes. Khosrowshahi, whose company is developing flying cars initiative Elevate, parried, saying that an improved battery and a few small rotors will reduce the noise and pollution.

All they in something are right, both visions of the future of transport have the right to life. The question is: who will win? Who is more convincing?

Flying cars have long been hiding somewhere around the corner, but despite the fact that the idea exists already for seventy years, none of them entered mass production. However, this may change.

Drone technology-bespilotnikov present a very convincing image of a rework of the flying cars. Previously, it was basically a car with wings, but now it’s more of a new generation of electric, often Autonomous, multirotor passenger vehicles.

Chinese startup eHang last month showed footage of people traveling for Autonomous passenger drones. According to CNN, the company carries passengers in 2015, but in the shot it fell for the first time.

Self-governing multirotor concept Airbus Vahana also carried out its first test flight in January, and the company said it plans to implement a version for mass production by 2020. Obviously, there are other startups working on prototypes.

To build flying cars is only part of the problem. Currently, it is unclear what rules the vehicles will be governed by the standard rules of aviation or new rules to be formulated for companies like Amazon who want to do air shipping.

Probably all will depend on the level of autonomy of the vehicle. Fully Autonomous eHang will not be much different from the drone of delivery, except that with a person instead of cargo. But Uber in your document Elevate sees pilots-people with the support of a partially Autonomous vehicle. The company claims that in an urban area, such devices can already fly on the rights of the helicopters.

Uber recognizes that adequate scaling of the new system of management of air traffic must be able to cope with thousands of drones and flying cars at low altitudes. NASA is currently developing this system and plans to implement it in the best case in 2025, and Uber recently joined the project, so the problem may be solved just by the time flying cars will be ready to capture the sky.

But what is the business model is quite another matter. Uber wants to offer the same services on transportation of passengers, as now, but they will sit in a specially equipped indoor “vertiport”.

Given the investment in infrastructure needed to create a comprehensive network of such centers, large initial costs for a fleet of flying machines, limited range of flight (due to weak batteries) and the cost of pilot training (or development impeccable authority), is extremely difficult to imagine that the available service of this kind will appear in the near future. Uber, of course, convinces us otherwise.

Perhaps this solution would be more environmentally friendly and convenient way for the wealthy executives to fly from one helipad to another. But hardly Uber and Lyft will be able to fix created their own traffic jams this way. Tube they created, pulling people out of public transport.

On the other hand, the vision Mask called Hyperloop offers just after the mass transit. He first presented the idea of launching passengers on the vacuum tube between Los Angeles and San Francisco at speeds of 1000 km/h in 2013.

It’s only been five years, and from Chicago to Mumbai are offered different projects, and over the direct embodiment employs several companies, including Virgin Hyperloop One, which is supported by billionaire Richard Branson.

While the Hyperloop needs to offer more cheap, clean and quick alternative to a short flight or high-speed highway between the towns, Musk also represented a more modest system Loop for urban areas. It is a network of tunnels dug under the city, with Autonomous “elettrocanali” that is worn on a speed of 200 km/h and can carry passenger cars or beans between the elevators, coming out onto the street.

Virgin Hyperloop One managed to disperse passenger Bob to the maximum speed of 387 km/h in the experimental tube length of 500 meters, but the technology itself still further from realization than flying cars. And if the funding of infrastructure to maintain the latter seems a difficult task, the cost of digging hundreds of kilometers of tunnels and filling them with electrified vacuum tubes… well, you understand.

In an attempt to cope with this question, Musk has created a Boring Company, which aims to reduce the cost of creating tunnels of $ 1 billion per kilometer in the United States more than ten times. But tens of millions of dollars per kilometer is still a huge amount of money.

And even if you find them, creating a tunnel takes a lot of time. And the resolution for their creation will have to dislodge for decades.

However, the project of mass transit can attract more attention of secondlow than trying to release into the skies above the city flying cars. Bent Flyvbjerg, an economist from Oxford University, specializing in mega-projects, said that major infrastructure relies on large subsidies, therefore, considering environmental and effective benefits, he sees no reason why not to build the Hyperloop.

He also noted that Musk is perfectly able to handle the financing of the government in the form of grants, tax breaks and environmental credits, as shown by his other projects. However, Boring Company will not raise additional funds for their projects.

Eventually flying cars and high-speed adpowerzone travel are unlikely to compete. They fill different niches, so the success of one is unlikely to prevent the development of another.

Currently the flying cars look closer to implementation, but it is unclear whether they become more than an update of private helicopters that few of us actually will use. The combination of the Hyperloop and the Loop, on the other hand, can justify the promise of Musk’s “fifth mode of transport”, which will revolutionize mass transportation… if you can find the money for its creation.

  1. Hiya, I am really glad I’ve found this info Nowadays bloggers publish just about gossips and net and this is really annoying A good site with interesting content, that is what I need Thank you for keeping this site, I’ll be visiting it Do you do newsletters? Cant find it

  2. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all igions under the worship of one God

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God (2 Thessalonians 2:4) For a time he will bring about a false peace, but Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15) then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be (Matthew 24:21)

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart Jesus loves you more than you could imagine He wants to have a ationship with you and redeem you from your sins Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! This is forever God bless!


    We all know God exists Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does Who is capable of knowing everything? God So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major holy books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things Watch a potential life-changing video on the website listed below with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists

    Jesus came to pay a debt that we could not; to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: For the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23)

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself All the law hang on these commands We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish For sin is the transgression of the law We must walk in the Spirit so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh, being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26) If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2) Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our own desires that they become sin (James 1:12-15) When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14)

    The oldest igion in the world is holiness through faith (James 1:27) What igion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what igion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow the rituals and traditions of man but to take up our cross and follow Him (Luke 9:23) There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment Unlike igion, holiness cannot be created It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit Jesus is more than a igion; He is about having a personal ationship with the Father Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!
