The long-awaited hyperloop has had its first successful passenger test, a major step towards what it's designers hope will be a new way of fast, easy transport. Using electric propulsion and magnetic levitation in a near-vacuum environment, the Virgin hyperloop sent two passengers on a 500m trip at speeds reaching 107.5mph (173kph).
