Hyperloop One is an avant-garde transportation technology that involves levitation, loops, and lots of speed. A year ago we watched Hyperloop One’s proof-of-concept demonstration involving a sled-type device, but this time they’ve done what they were only talking about then. In the first phase of full-scale testing Hyperloop One used magnetic levitation to hover above its track and accelerate for 5.6 seconds.
