A futuristic concept to speed up commuting between Doha and Dubai has been revealed.
The UAE has unveiled a new high-speed transportation concept that could take passengers from Dubai to Doha in 23 minutes, Doha News reported.
The idea of a rapid-transit hyperloop was first conceptualised in 2013 by SpaceX founder Elon Musk, sparking interest from several companies, which have been since been working on making the concept a reality.
The system will allow passengers to cover a distance of 150km in a matter of minutes in the comfort of air-cushioned pods speeding through a semi-vacuumed tube.
A US-based firm, Hyperloop One Inc, is developing technology with Dubai Future Accelerators (DFA), and is nearing the end of a 12-week programme. More info
