Hyperloop Working on Augmented Reality Windows for Passengers


March 15th, 2016

Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT) is currently working on a way to liven up the journey for its future passengers using Augmented Reality. CEO Dirk Alhborn gave a talk at South by Southwest this week demonstrating the concept according to this article by Karissa Bell at Mashable. A video of the idea is shown below.


For those that don’t know, the Hyperloop is a high-speed transportation system where capsules blast through tubes on an air cushion at proposed speeds of 760 mph. It was originally put forth by a team working with Elon Musk. The design could get a person from LA to San Francisco in about 30 minutes.


Travelling through enclosed tubes could get pretty boring and induce claustrophobia in some people. A big part of reducing these effects while travelling is the ability to view the scenery and landscapes a person is travelling though. The technology HTT is working on would not only have a digital display on the window but it would also have head tracking. This allows the scene to change as your head moves around to mimic a person looking out of a real window. This gives a more natural look and feel. HTT said it could also be used for advertising opportunities and the video seems to demonstrate other potentially important travel data displayed on the window.
