Elon Musk, the founder of SpaceX and Tesla, did unveil his plan for the Hyperloop transportation system earlier this month to mixed reaction. Of course, great ideas tend to share one thing in common – there will always be naysayers in the mix who claim that the plan cannot be implemented, while there will be another group who claim that such a plan is brilliant, although the latter tends to be a whole lot fewer in number than the former. Still, the Hyperloop transportation system deserves its fair share of attention, and a company known as WhiteClouds have come together to deliver a 3D printed model of Musk’s Hyperloop in just 24 hours, which depicts the efficiency of how 3D printing is able to assist us in actualizing theoretical ideas.
According to WhiteClouds CEO Jerry Ropelato who explained the reason behind this 3D model, he said that “as a company we’re really interested in technology, and I thought it would be fun and interesting to take what we do every day and make the Hyperloop concept into something real. This really demonstrates the possibilities 3D printing offers.” Do you personally think that the Hyperloop transport system is going to be a success, or will it not be economically viable?
