Hyperloop One Debuts “Tube Deformer” Building Nevada Test Track on Instagram

Hyperloop One, one of two companies working to make Elon Musk’s dream of magnetic tube travel a reality, has a lot of work to do to before it realizes any of its ambitious plans. But the company is moving quickly, having successfully tested its propulsion system for the first time last month, it is now building a test track that would more closely resemble the much-dreamed-about Hyperloop. The first test track will be at least a mile long, meaning Hyperloop One has already developed technology to make an otherwise languorous process a little less lengthy. The “tube deformer,” introduced to the world writ large in anInstagram video, is a specialty machine designed to make the assembly of hyperloop tubes easier and more affordable.
