‘Hyperloop’ concept for California travel unveiled

LIKE PNEUMATIC TUBES:Floating on a cushion of air, the capsules would be pulled through a tube between Los Angeles and San Francisco by magnetic attraction

AP, LOS ANGELES

Musk has said he is too focused on other projects to consider actually building the Hyperloop, and instead is publishing an open-source design that anyone can use or modify.

That is still the case, he said on Monday, but added that if no one else steps forward he might build a working prototype. That would take three or four years, he said.

As with Tesla and SpaceX, Musk mused, there are bound to be unforeseen technical obstacles.
