【有钱就是任性!迪拜要修超级高铁了】超级高铁是阿隆马斯克提出的理念,如今,迪拜计划将这一理念变为现实。迪拜宣布,将于9月份举办国际竞赛,寻找全新公共交通系统的设计,能够用比飞机还快的速度运送乘客。从迪拜到富查伊拉坐火车要1个半到2个小时,根据超级高铁计划,耗时将缩减为“不到10分钟”。

Hyperloop is coming to Dubai: Elon Musk's vision could take passengers 65 miles from the city to Fujairah in 10 MINUTES

Being propelled in capsules along a pneumatic tube at speeds of up to 740mph (1,200km/h) might seem like something out of science fiction.

But the concept of a super-fast Hyperloop train may be a reality soon as more and more cities are joining the race to build quicker transport.

The latest city is Dubai, which will be hosting a competition looking for designs of a radical new mass transit system, able to carry passengers at speeds faster than some airliners.

Hyperloop is the vision of Elon Musk, owner of Tesla and SpaceX, who made the technology patent-free in a bid to encourage international scientific collaboration around the futuristic concept.

The tube is suspended off the ground to protect against weather and earthquakes.

Passengers would sit in either individual or group pods, which would then be accelerated with magnets.

A Hyperloop between Dubai and Fujairah, a distance of 65 miles (105 km) would reduce travel time to less than 10 minutes.

The city plans to host an international competition in September, where designs will be invited for a system that uses a pipeline to propel people and goods in capsules, the government of the United Arab Emirates has said.

The 48-hour 'Build Live Earth' contest on 26 September will involve international scientific cooperation to introduce the latest technology on Hyperloop transportation designs.

More than 100 participants have enrolled under teams from various engineering and scientific international enterprises, and in the final stage, six teams will explain their project in front of evaluation judges.

'Dubai is hosting this global event as part of the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to make the UAE and Dubai a global platform for innovative minds to come together to create futuristic solutions on issues of relevance to humanity,' said Mohammed Al Gergawi, managing director of Dubai Future Foundation.

'This will eventually lead to massive global economic growth, and we aim to keep pace with the rapid developments by focusing on smart application of services and innovation in all fields,' Al Gergawi added.

The development of future transportation solutions is hoped to change the way people handle their daily tasks, and the way they work and commute, especially considering that the world is witnessing a technical revolution involving 3D printing, self-driving vehicles, and robotics.

Experts say the cost of building a single Hyperloop tube will cost just 10 per cent of the cost of building conventional high speed trains.

Earlier this year it was revealed an 'Innovation Train' featuring new technologies developed by the Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT), such as augmented reality windows, could be available as soon as next year.

The company has teamed up with Deutsche Bahn, which operates the largest rail network in Europe, to create a more efficient train with a 'modern digital presence.'

HTT's futuristic transport system envisages passengers being able to travel between Los Angeles and San Francisco in just 34 minutes.

The company is working with a Munich-based company called Re'Flekt, which specialises in augmented reality.

The major addition to the train will be Hyperloop-style interactive windows.
