The Dubai Future Foundation recently organized an International Hyperloop Competition in order to help make the (seemingly) impossible possible. The two day competition had contestants design three Hyperloop terminals which were evaluated by a panel of judges.
“Imagine that you can live in Riyadh, work in Dubai, have your dinner in Abu Dhabi and watch a movie in Qatar,” said His Excellency Saif Al Aleeli, CEO of Dubai Future Foundation, “Dubai is trying, as a mission, to prove that concept.”
In a release, H.E. Mohammad bin Abdullah Al Gergawi, Minister of the UAE Cabinet Affairs and the Future, and Vice Chairman of Dubai Future Foundation, added that Dubai is working to become “a global platform for innovative minds to come together to create futuristic solutions on issues of relevance to humanity” and to that end, “this contest is a great opportunity to explore innovative ideas in the smart transportation sector.”
