When Elon Musk introduced the idea of the Hyperloop in 2013 — a space-age rail system that would fire trains from one destination to another at 760 mph in air-tight vacuum tubes — his open-source white paper invited the talents of those interested to contribute their ideas to making his vision a reality. Austin-based design consultancy Argodesign has pitched in with its designs on how to make what could potentially be a claustrophobic, frightening experience into a civilized, and even enjoyable ride not unlike commercial air travel nowadays. Proposing a three-car customizable ”jukebox” configuration, Argodesign’s concept would allow cars of five types — a vehicle car, cargo car and three passenger cars (executive, business and coach classes) — to be interchanged to create an 80-foot train, depending on the assets that need transporting. As for the passenger experience, massive screens showing calming landscapes make up for the absence of windows, while business and coach seats are equipped with TV screens to pass the time, while executive seats would allow for meetings. Would you be willing to ride on the Hyperloop if this concept design were realized?
