'China may help Elon Musk's Hyperloop system become a reality.

The country's biggest railway equipment manufacturer, CRRC, is reportedly looking to invest in a company developing the Hyperloop commercially.


"We expect many opportunities will emerge to deploy our Hyperloop system in Asia, for both freight and passenger services and expect the first three Hyperloop production systems will begin construction between 2017 and 2020, with first services to start by 2021," the spokesperson said.'

' "As soon as [the Hyperloop] happens somewhere, and people see it really work out, I think it will quickly spread throughout the world," said Musk during the event.'

'Among the most buzzed-about booths was one put together by a group of students from the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands, one of the most prestigious engineering universities in the world.

A team of 10 full-time and 20 part-time team members had been working around the clock since September to develop a pod concept based upon passive levitation, in which a Halbach array of magnets suspended the pod 20mm above the Hyperloop track. This type of magnetic array required no onboard power and also kept the magnetic field outside of the pod. “It’s pacemaker safe,” explained Quint Houwink, a 19-year old sophomore studying aerospace engineering at the university. To look into the eager eyes of someone like Houwink is to understand what Musk has tapped into with the Hyperloop idea. Only students this young would be so brash to think they could introduce the world’s first radically new mode of Earthly transportation in more than a century.

Come on, I asked. Do you think this is actually going to happen? “It’s definitely going to happen,” Houwink said. “Oh yeah. I’m surprised that it doesn’t exist already. All of the technology inside the Hyperloop has been around for decades. The only thing we’re doing is putting that technology together. It’s not complex.”

Pressed for why he’s so optimistic, the answer, ultimately, is Musk. “Everyone in the Netherlands is a fan of Elon Musk,” Houwink explained. “He takes an idea and actually does something with it. It’s the same as SpaceX. There was not a company in the world that wanted to get involved in spaceflight because it was too expensive, and he said he would do it. And it’s the same with the Hyperloop. He took a concept and wrote a paper about it, and that stimulated students to do something about it.” '
