We haven’t seen a great new innovation in transportation technology since the airplane, and it’s time for a new one.

Chris Bobko is the head of engineering at Hyper Loop Technology and in this talk he gives an overview of how we can bring airplane speeds to ground level, shrinking mega regions like the entire Great Lakes into a singular commuter area.
