WToday we’re looking at three different modes of modern transportation that made headlines this week. At the end of the day, dear readers, you can decide which one you would prefer.
In Nevada, for the first time, two people were traveling as a pneumatic tube. The first manned test drive of the Virgin Hyperloop was considered a complete success by Virgin Hyperloop.
The tube system through which containers with living cargo are to be shot is touted as the transport system of the future with speeds of up to 1000 km / h.
A man and a woman from Hyperloop management were only on the 500-meter test track for a few seconds with a maximum of 172 things, but be ready to travel as a supersonic mole soon.
The maiden flight of a human in an electric wingsuit was also a complete success. BMW developed the propeller suit together with the Austrian wingsuit professional Peter Salzmann. He threw himself out of a helicopter and took off. More than 300 km / h should be possible. Not only on the road, BMW wants to “change the individual mobility experience sustainably”. So you can look forward to commuting to work as an electro Batman or woman.
Boris Herrmann’s boat also has wings. The smart, charismatic sailor who chauffeured Greta Thunberg across the Atlantic has been experiencing for a week what is considered the ultimate test of what a person is able to endure, participation in the Vendée Globe. For half his life, the 39-year-old solo sailor has worked to be the first German to take part in this round-the-world race. Check out the videos on board and see if this would be something for you.
What do you choose? Don’t write to us! Better keep your fingers crossed for Boris Herrmann. We do it too.
