EEVblog 1498 - TransPod Fluxjet Hyperloop $550M Boondoggle!2
The Transpod FluxJet is Hyperloop based on the "New physics" of "Veillance Flux"!
And plasma arc power transfer!
$550M to create a reduced pressure Fluxjet link from Calgary to Edmonton in Canada.
It'll only cost $18B, what a bargain!
And Sydney to Brisbane? Err, yeah, ok, let's look at that...
