Daryl Oster on speedy travel in a vacuum tube

Presented By: Daryl Oster

Daryl Oster, founder and CEO of et3, says “we must have a new paradigm shift in transportation,” and that means “taking space travel conditions down to earth.” He would do this with evacuated tube transport technology that would allow travel from Toronto to Beijing in two hours, travelling at 6500 km per hour, for a cost of $100 round trip. Travel would be “clean, green, fast, comfortable and affordable for all,” and safe, not vulnerable to environmental conditions. In this scenario, car-sized┬ápassenger or cargo capsules would be moved along an international network of 1.5m diameter frictionless vacuum tubes using magnetic levitation technology. Watch the video and see the future unfold.
