Hyperloop shows how a ride will look

However it is still unclear what the impacts on the human body will be.

Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT), which plans to build a tube-based travelling system between Bratislava and Vienna by 2020, shortening the journey time from about an hour to eight minutes, has published new visualisations of the train’s interior at a conference in Vienna.

The company anticipates that passengers will sit in leather seats and will look through the windows during the short ride. They will not see the countryside (as the train will be located in a tunnel made of steel), but a visualisation screened on interactive panels that will look like windows, the Sme daily reported on its website.

The video will correspond with the exterior, thanks to shooting its movement. The panels will also show the time, weather forecast, distance and the train’s route, Sme wrote.

The video, however, misses the real impact of the speed on passengers. The train may travel at the muaximm speed of 1,200 kilometres per hour, while the average speed will be 970 kilometres per hour.

The biggest problem when riding by Hyperlook will be doglegs or emergency stops. In the former case, the human body may respond with more difficult breathing and movement, and also the insufficient supply of blood to some body parts. If the company wants to avoid this, the route will need to be straight. Similar problems also occurred in the case of an emergency stop, Sme wrote.
