Virgin has revealed the design for the pods in their high speed Hyperloop One system, displaying a prototype pod as part of the United Arab Emirate’s Innovation Month.
The prototype boasts a futuristic interior, leather seating for 10 passengers and high definition TV screens.
The pods will become part of a transport service in Dubai and carry passengers to neighbouring Abu Dhabi, the Daily Mail reports.
Their 1220km/h speed will allow them to travel the 140 kilometres between the cities in 12 minutes – normally a 90 minutecar-ride.
In New Zealand that would be the equivalent to travelling between Wellington and Palmerston North.
The Hyperloop will be launched in Dubai in 2020 as part of a goal from the local Road Transport Authority (RTA) to have 25 percent of all journeys driverless by 2030.
