Exponentially faster transport of goods
The railroad and steam engine disrupted the horse and cart, allowing for more heavy goods to travel faster and further at massively reduced cost.
By connecting an entire continent through a network of vacuum tubes a transformation of the same magnitude will occur again, as heavy-duty goods will zip forward unhindered by friction.
Connecting a continent of people
Making Europolis a reality
You can leisurely finish your morning biscotti in Stockholm before effortlessly showing up for work in Berlin and then enjoy the best tapas in Barcelona with your friends in the evening. For the price of very little. No passing through airport security, no take off and landing. Just a thwoomph.
This is enabled by the application of Hyperloop technology at scale, effectively turning the continent of Europe into the mega city of Europolis.
Why this idea is not only bold but also believable
Former SpaceX pioneers pushing into vacuum
With a founding team sprung from the innovation engine that is Elon Musk's SpaceX, this startup has the pedigree to literally bend physics. Currently building the prototype test track that will make or break the trajectory.
Engineering the unimaginable through crowdfunding
HTT is the second company actively creating the technology necessary for implementing the vision at scale, and they do so in a novel way. By mobilizing an army of passionate engineers and makers throughout the world via their own spin on crowdfunding, they have quickly achieved immense momentum at a fraction of the expected cost.
Cannot help but wanting to play a part, and host a contest
SpaceX may be entirely focused on its founding goal of creating a self-sustaining colony on Mars while building a profitable satellite-launch business, and yet the company is committed to also help out with vacuum here on earth.
His open source white paper that broke the internet
Needing no further introduction, Elon Musk is the kind of guy that personifies what 'super-credibility' means. When he says something bold, it cannot be dismissed as the ravings of a techno-utopian mad man.
So when he in 2013, peeved over the inadequacies of the new $60 billion+ California high-speed rail project, wrote this white paper the world got curious and then some people got bold. What followed is what is happening now.
Our humble goals:
Worth a shot. Should be fun.
Who we are
Why we are excited
We are a company-agnostic skunk works that partners with Fortune 500 titans of industry to pursue solutions to the world's most grand challenges.
10x Labs prototypes, deploys and facilitates the understanding of exponential technologies that are going from being deceptive to disruptive.
Euroloop is such a prototype - giving flesh, muscle and expression to what is still an emerging skeleton of technological schematics.
We believe that this will change the world and we want to contribute to it happening faster, and this is how we start doing so.
Maker in Residence
Artistic mind with passion for big and bold ventures in technology. He has been painting and drawing since he was a child, making his own sketches of how he wanted the world to look like. He is currently at Hyper Island, learning how to put his skills to good use in an exponentially growing industry. It just goes to show that when a vision needs visualization, he will put stylus to tablet.
