TECH NEWS: Tycoon Unveils 'Hyperloop' Transport Project

Posted

American entrepreneur Elon Musk, founder of website Paypal.com (as well as many other companies/ventures), has this month unveiled a potentially revolutionary form of travel.

The 'Hyperloop' would hypothetically connect the US cities of Los Angeles and San Francisco by transporting commuters at near supersonic speeds. By using a system of magnets and fans, the Hyperloop would be able to travel between the sprawling cities in about 30 minutes.

The system, which would ideally be solar-powered, represents a cleaner, cheaper and far more efficient system of public transport, at least in theory.

A high-speed train service between the two cities ishere, but the Hyperloop is potentially a better mode of travel. Mr. Musk is confident that the idea has potential, writing in his proposal that, "Short of figuring out real teleportation, which would of course be awesome... the only option for superfast travel is to build a tube over or under the ground that contains a special environment,"

Musk estimated the overall cost of the project at $6bn ( 3.9bn), which is surprisingly low considering that it involves the development of a new and untested technology.

He suggests that cars could leave at intervals of 30 seconds and that they would reach an incredible speed of up to 760MPH. The eventual ticket cost would be around $20 ( 13 at the current exchange rate), according to Musk's projections.

According to Musk, the Hyperloop would be faster than taking a plane between cities, as it would not spend time ascending and descending.

However, not everyone is as optimistic as the project's founder. Dave Lee, technology reporter for BBC news wrote, "The bright idea of transporting people using some kind of vacuum-like tube is neither new nor imaginative". He went on to remind readers that Robert Goddard, the father of modern rocket propulsion, proposed a similar, vacuum powered system back in 1909.

MIT aeronautics and astronautics Professor John Hansman was a little more optimistic, saying that the important question is not whether the idea is theoretically sound (it is), but is instead "could you do it in a way that makes sense from an energy-efficiency standpoint and makes sense from an economic standpoint?"

Other critics have attacked Musk's projected costs, Alan Wickens, former director of British Rail said that Musk's cost projections were "extremely optimistic".

The Billionaire tycoon asserts that a working prototype would take roughly 4 years to build, but has also said that he is too busy to build it right away, as he is currently working on SpaceX, a commercial spaceflight project.

What, if any, future the Hyperloop will have depends greatly on the project's ability to capture the imaginations of investors, engineers and the general public. We'll keep you updated.

What makes the iphone so trendy

Posted

Given the reliability, capacity to entertain and user-friendliness of the iPhone, its a small wonder more people don't fall in madly love with them. You love your iPhone, it's only natural to want to protect her. You can start by buying some iphone covers from this very site!

Your iPhone is beautiful, gets on with your friends and is always there when you need her. She's smart, funny and the envy of everybody you know. So who wouldn't hire a bodyguard for their iPhone? She's in constant danger!



iPhones need iphone covers to keep them safe. In the course of a day iphone covers protect her from being dropped, waterlogged, smashed, cracked, burned and otherwise mistreated. In fact, sometimes the only thing standing between iPhones and their total annihilation are iphone covers.

iphone covers come in a variety of colours, designs and prices, so why not look around and see our selection of iphone covers? Ultimately, you may end up cradling your iPhone whilst leaving a busy London nightclub crooning "And iiiiiiiiiiiieeeeeiiiiiiiieeeee eiiiiiiii wiiiiiiiil alwaaays loooove youuuuuuuu!!!!" at the top of your lungs, but this only happens in very rare cases.

The rest of us, after nestling our little beauties safely in their iphone covers, go on to lead mostly normal lives and in no way ever end up sitting behind a dumpster in Soho, holding our iPhones ever-so-tenderly. "Hey, why are you singing to that iPhone?" "Uh...No reason, officer..."

Are Playstation 4 games getting better or is it just me?

Where do the latestPlaystation 4 games sit on the Pantheon of the Playstation 4? Let's have a look-see.

"Well, with a little trepidation I've finally done it" the update read "I've bought my own detached house. It has all appliances I could need and a beautiful thatched roof"

I was surprised and impressed by this news, Bob is only a little older than me. I was shocked that he was enjoying so much success. It was nice to see him doing well. Bob and I used to take college classes together, after which he took a job. Lunch times from my college course and hang out with him, watching the girls go by and talking crap, it was fun. After a while, he moved on and we parted ways, eventually randomly meeting a few years later on a train. At that time we were both writing. I was about to say 'well done' when I saw the end of his post. Yes, Bob has the perfect place and yes, it has appliances and a thatched roof...On Skyrim. I groaned and joined the legion of talking heads telling him what a nerd.

The point is that Bob is not alone, 2011 was a great year for PS4 games. Skyrim destroyed the social lives of half of my friends. Great. In fact, for a couple months, every. Found him in at least one electronic store (I think it was Currys).



Fell prey to. Despite the fact that they dropped the year from the title. Might get on the nerves of some F1 fans, but will thrill vacant window shoppers with disposable income who are attracted to the letter 'F'. It is the sequel to...Don't make me tell you!, with updated squad lists and slightly better graphics. It sold well, but I can't say it's hugely better than FIFA11.

Another big seller of 2011. Maybe that's going too far). I can't stand Dragon Ball Z. Sit through There's like, three frames of animation per episode, most of which is either recapping the last. More pissed off and angrier. Finally, once all the major characters have died AGAIN. The end. hours of my life I'm not getting back any time soon to get there. What's that? Oh, the game? {I have no idea, I got sidetracked|Distracted|Taken off on a tangent...Actually, I should issue an apology before DBZ's legions of fans stand around getting angrier.



Look at some of the latest ps4 games, and, if you're not hip to such things, is probably where most of your friends have gone

Every year we are offered a new batch of Playstation 3 games, when will this end! hopefully never.

Where do the latestPS3 games sit on the Pantheon of the PS3? Let's have a look-see.

old chum.

"Well, with a little trepidation I've finally done it" the update read "I've bought my own detached house. It has all appliances I could need and a beautiful thatched roof"

Not much older than me. I was surprised by how much success he'd http://www.metacritic.com/game /playstation-3 had. I was pleased for him. Bob and I were in the same class at college. Lunch breaks. He moved away and I only met him a few years later, whilst we were on the same train. Working as writers. I went to offer my congratulations until I realized I'd been had by two words. Dweeb he is.

Bob is not alone, loads of people had great fun last year with PS3 games. Around half my mates had their social lives decimated by Skyrim. Awesome graphics, Skyrim was quite rightly lauded as one of the best games of 2011. Each. The barbarian followed me about actually, and I caught him.

Fell victim to this little number, is FIFA12. is extremely unlikely to work if they make the title any shorter. Might get on the nerves of some F1 fans, but will thrill vacant window shoppers with disposable income who are attracted to the letter 'F'. The game itself does exactly what it (almost doesn't) say on the tin, and is a basic upgrade of the previous release. Its not a massive improvement.

Another one that did well towards the end of last year. I think it involves sake and a forceful reach around), much less an 'ultimate' edition (maybe the sauce is flammable?. I find Dragonball Z really irritating. Get into that show? There's like, three frames of animation per episode, most of which is either recapping the last. Apart from that, our lead characters do nothing but get angrier. Extremely pissed off) hero gets really mad, glows yellow and kills him. The end. And it only took ten episodes. What's that? Oh, the game? {I have no idea, I got sidetracked|Distracted|Taken off on a tangent...Actually, I should issue an apology before DBZ's legions of fans stand around getting angrier.
