Dutch hyperloop company Hardt wants future travelers to get a clear idea of what traveling with this new sustainable way of high-speed travel will be like. The goal is, that as soon as the current situation will allow for it, CABIN-1 will be visiting public places throughout Europe. According to Jelte Altena, Project Lead at Hardt Hyperloop, Hardt has been making major progress in developing hyperloop since 2017 and it has proved that it is a very feasible alternative for short-haul flights. However, apart from great images and videos, the hyperloop remains something abstract. Now, with CABIN-1, Hardt aims to make hyperloop more tangible and accessible to the public.
The next step Hardt Hyperloop has to take in the development progress is public adoption! The hyperloop ticks all the boxes and appears to be the best product on paper. But like every new ground-breaking technology, the product must ultimately be embraced by the end-user. And that is perhaps the biggest challenge, to convince all stakeholders, rather than technological development per se.
