Hyperloop travel will likely come to fruition within the coming decades, so the MIT Hyperloop Pod is a glimpse into what the vehicles that will operate on the system might look like.
Designed by Main & Partners, the pod is shaped like a droplet and is capable of providing comfortable seating for up to 28 passengers as well as space for cargo. The pod could also be used strictly for cargo as a way to help make the transportation of goods from different locations more effective.
The MIT Hyperloop Pod requires minimal power to keep running and isn't as expensive to build and operate as maglev transit systems are. This will likely be a contributing factor in the future as costs remain a top concern for designers and operators.
