    From the moment Space X founder Elon Musk proposed the Hyperloop concept 3 years ago, he set off a global race to make this futuristic mode of transportation a reality. Today, a global community of engineers and entrepreneurs has emerged to develop Hyperloop systems that would send people and cargo hurtling through...

    Scientists at Harvard University have made it possible to turn the lightest of all elements—hydrogen—into a valuable metal, giving birth to a real revolution. According to the researchers, this is the first ever metallic hydrogen on Earth! It was obtained by taking liquid hydrogen to a temperature far below freezing...

    Last November at SPS, Festo presented its motion-in-suspension technology, a patented levitation process based on an ultra-low temperature permanent magnetic field (watch our video report). For this year’s edition of Hannover Messe, the German company showcased three new versions of its technology that could benefit...

    The aircraft manufacturer already 3D prints engine parts. Going a step further, it has patented a technology that enables the printing of 3D objects with no support, while they are floating in the air. The new process involves multiple 3D printers and a magnetic field holding the “nugget,“ Boeing’s name for the...

    A team from MIT has won the Space X contest for designing the Hyperloop experimental travel capsule, a form of high-speed transportation imagined by Space X founder Elon Musk. After planes, trains, cars and boats, Hyperloop may become the 5th mode of transport, according to the billionaire entrepreneur. Hyperloop will...
