Billionaire Richard Branson unveils vision for high-speed tubes that could transport people at 600 mph

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) — Billionaire Richard Branson is displaying off his vision for a high-speed transportation system.

He unveiled the idea yesterday for Virgin’s Hyperloop, which he claims will ship people between cities in tubes at 600 miles per hour.

The bullet practice in a tube idea, initially conceived by Elon Musk, makes use of highly effective magnetic pods to sling you round at prime speeds.

Virgin hopes to start industrial operations in 2027.
