Your Hyperloop Ride Will Include Beautiful Scenery And Your Own Personal Entertainment SystemBy: Chris Crum - August 13, 2013
As you’ve no doubt heard, Elon Musk revealed his plans for the Hyperloop transportation system on Monday. You might be wondering what it would be like to ride in it. While it’s hard to say for sure without it actually existing, Musk tries to give us an idea in a large PDF document with all the details about its plans.
There’s a section of the document that focuses on the interior. “The interior of the capsule is specifically designed with passenger safety and comfort in mind,” it says. “The seats conform well to the body to maintain comfort during the high speed accelerations experienced during travel. Beautiful landscape will be displayed in the cabin and each passenger will have access their own personal entertainment system.”
The interior weight of the capsule is expected to be about 5,500 pounds, including the seats, restraint systems, interior and door panels, luggage compartments, and entertainment displays (this is all expected to cost about $255,00).
Here are a couple of diagrams included in the plans, looking at a capsule version with doors open at the station and a cutaway with passengers on board.
The different version of the capsule called the “Passenger Plus,” would weigh about 6,000 pounds, and would cost about $185,000.
