A reduced-pressure sealed tube system with a near-zero friction environment for magnetic-levitating pods. These capsules would cruise at 600mph (ca. 966 km/h), propelled by a linear induction propulsion system allowing passengers or automated pods that transport cargo to travel long distances in a short amount of time while reducing traffic congestions. As its regenerative braking system recovers much of the energy used during deceleration, it would generate more electricity than it consumes, providing the transportation industry and the world with a fresh perspective on clean energy production.
