Is there a chance Hyperloop might come to israel one day ?
Haha, Well, off course. The system solves a big problem. It has a business modell. So it doesn’t rely on government subsidies. Which all other rails and metros need. So I’m sure that is a big cost for Israel as well.
Is there already negotiations ?
Nothing so far. At the moment we work with inbound inquiries.
Did you all find your inspiration somehow in Isaac Asimov’s books ?
The idea has been around for many hundred years. Different books have been written, movies, cartoons. I assume in one way or another all of us humans are inspired by them.
Delta Force found in Bin Laden’s hardware, a project of mass murder in a high speed train over a bridge in 2011. This catstrophical scenario, is almost a scene of the Captain America movie launched that same year. Have you thought about that to create a technology that is almost unbreakable ?
Yes we are working on resistant.
