The world saw the first public test of futuristic technology that could revolutionize transportation Wednesday afternoon in the Nevada desert.

Dubbed the “Hyperloop," it's an idea that was first proposed by entrepreneur, Elon Musk.

The idea is to create an air-tight, frictionless tube that shoots capsules carrying passengers or cargo more than twice as fast as any of today's fastest Bullet Trains.

“Faster than a speeding bullet train, more powerful than an airplane,” that's what Elon Musk hoped for when he unveiled his idea for the Hyperloop back in 2013, sparking an intense competition among rival firms to build the first working model.
