Elon_Musk_2015 Elon Musk has changed the world by building SpaceX and Tesla.

But his newest idea.

It’s so radically different.

It could change *everything*.




Meet Hyperloop


Labeled as the “5th mode of transportation” , the Hyperloop is a pod that levitates inside of a low pressure tube environment, propelled forward by a compressor at a blistering speed of 760mph.

This mode of high speed transit could take you from Los Angeles to Las Vegas in 20 minutes, and cost around $30.

Not only is it fast, but it’s also energy efficient…consuming very little resources, while at the same time powered by renewable energy such as solar power.

The Compute Midwest conference is pleased to announce that we’ll bring this revolutionary idea to Kansas City on November 2nd.
