Dubai to Abu Dhabi in 12 minutes: How it really works

(Screengrab via Youtube)

On their Youtube channel, Hyperloop One helps you explore what goes on inside the Hyperloop unit.

Hyperloop One released two videos recently. The first explains the science behind the transport technology and the second takes viewers inside the working prototype of Hyperloop One.

Let's talk about the second video.

On their Youtube channel, Hyperloop One helps you explore what goes on inside the Hyperloop unit. The video was taken as part of a series of tests that they are conducting to fully implement the technology.

It can be recalled that Hyperloop will connect not only the UAE, but also its neighbouring countries such as Oman and Saudi Arabia. Once fully operational, Hyperloop One could reduce the travel time between Dubai and Abu Dhabi to 12 minutes.



The video also reveals the Hyperloop test unit travels at speeds close to 1,077 km/h! What's more, the journey inside the Hyperloop isn't dull either as lights span the entire tunnel, giving the feel that it's like in the movies - remember Tron: Legacy?

Grab a front seat and experience what could be inside the future of UAE transport by watching the video below.
