The Transpod FluxJet is Hyperloop based on the "New physics" of "Veillance Flux"!
And plasma arc power transfer!
$550M to create a reduced pressure Fluxjet link from Calgary to Edmonton in Canada.
It'll only cost $18B, what a bargain!
And Sydney to Brisbane? Err, yeah, ok, let's look at that...

    Maybe since the stock market bubble is nearly finished, theres nothing left to invest in, and ideas like these are a last ditch effort to keep the investment ferris wheel going around.. theres gonna be more and more stuff like this

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Science in Engineering says:

    "Flip the script and use attraction in steed of repulsion with a 1 cm gap"

    So.. its exactly as transrapid? Also SC-maglev really don´t use repullsion either, it use a combination of repulsion and attraction

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Asteroid! Panic! Death! says:

    (Thunderf00t is not alone after all!)
    We should just have special bus roads & electric buses that accelerate
    0-60mph in 2sec.
    Like a
    Tesla Model S Plaid!

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Roope T says:

    totally feasible as long as it does in fact turn out that magic is real

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Direkin says:

    "What the heck is that doing?" Probably doing exactly what you said at first: flashing LEDs. You know no high tech device made for video is complete without blinking lights everywhere for no reason.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MrDehicka says:

    For the reference, England HS2 budget got over $100Bn and the construction is not even close to be finished.
    Just a regular high speed train without plasma, vacuum and flux capacitors.

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ChefHomesteadMaker says:

    I wonder what the point is in having an aerodynamic front end? It's in a vacuum rube… no air.

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mic_Glow says:

    fluxjet sounds like what happened in my restroom at 2am after eating kebab with garlic sauce and drinking buttermilk afterwards

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars m9 says:

    All the companies executive board, president and engineers better be the first ones to test ride the first official opening run. 🙂

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Eo Tunun says:

    In their interpretation, the word flux probably is an acronym made out of the words flying and fux, for that's what they'll actually deliver.
    P.S.: "Featured on […] Through the Wormhole" Yepp. That wormhole behind which tapeworms dwell, right?

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Fulcrum Labs says:

    So, you’re saying there’s a chance…
    😂

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars unprintable says:

    Plasma in vacuum… Sounds like you'll get free X-Rays with every ride too! Amazing!

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Watt says:

    Dave, these investors may not be as dumb as we think: if this thing fails, they get one hell of a tax write-off as well as "green credits" in PR.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ralf Hasemann says:

    Well, this will work! Dave is of course wrong. They only have to add some free energy collectors to their vehicle! 😀 What do serious scientists know?

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Keep Talking, Nobody Listens says:

    The only vacuum tubes we are traveling in are usually called space shuttles

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mauro Tamm says:

    If you look at it from the front, I think this is where the Flux Capacitor is installed.
    The plasma skates are used to transfer Jigawatts to power it.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul Sinclair says:

    Maybe just a massive distraction away from building viable high speed rail using proven technology in North America but what would I know.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 6581punk says:

    So their pod seats about 12 people at a time? yeah good luck with that.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nex Pro says:

    If they approach me for money I'm going to tell them to fux off.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nex Pro says:

    Ok Dave how much have you invested in this? 😁

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Neil Martins says:

    I call bull.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joel Mckay says:

    Canada already has a coast-to-coast rail system, and includes passenger rail service.
    Vacuum systems are heavy, expensive, and maintenance intensive.. Powered by red-herrings for sure. 🙃

    The 3d renders for these things always have such major Dahir Insaat energy
