Virgin Group invests in Hyperloop, rebrands as Virgin Hyperloop One

[Virgin Group is] delighted to announce [their] investment in Hyperloop One – the world’s most revolutionary train service. This is an incredibly innovative and exciting new way to move people and things at airline speeds on the ground. At the same time we have also agreed to rebrand the company as Virgin Hyperloop One.

Wowsers the Hyperloop hype-train continues to rocket along (at a peak of 310km/h in testing apparently).

The original tech behind Hyperloop was open sourced by Elon Musk’s SpaceX corporation and has led to many iterations being attempted around the world. Virgin Hyperloop One is the largest of these with projects underway in the Middle East, Europe, India, Canada, and the US.
