Hyperloop just started looking a whole lot cooler.

The high-speed transportation system, a brainchild of Elon Musk, is all about speeding up the journey between major cities. Passenger pods would zip through a near-vacuum tube connecting, for example, Toronto and Montreal—a trip that could take as little as half an hour.
