Hyperloop, Rockets, and Avatars in the Coming Decade

What’s faster than autonomous vehicles and flying cars? Try Hyperloop, rocket travel, and robotic avatars

Hyperloop is currently working towards 670 mph (1080 kph) passenger pods, capable of zipping us from Los Angeles to downtown Las Vegas in under 30 minutes. Rocket Travel (think SpaceX’s Starship) promises to deliver you almost anywhere on the planet in under an hour. Think New York to Shanghai in 39 minutes.
