Interior Shots of Elon Musk’s Hyperloop Don’t Have Us Excited

Hyperloop Transportation

Those excited for Elon Musk's Hyperloop transit system might re-think their feelings after seeing these photos of the interior.

Just like passengers flying coach, being cramped is not something anyone looks forward to when traveling.

The Verge unveiled these interior concept renderings from Hyperloop Transportation Technologies this week, featuring cramped seating with dividers in-between seats instead of an arm rest. Furthermore, the seats don't seem to be adjustable and don't even look very comfortable, nor is there any on-board entertainment or room for bags.

The Hyperloop is said to travel at speeds of 760 mph, allowing passengers to make it to San Francisco from Los Angeles in just 30 minutes.

Will speed make up for comfort here? What do you think? Keep in mind, these renderings are just concepts for now.

    Also, moving faster than an airplane, with no TSA or any other preboarding nonsense (should be as seamless as a subway ride, right?) should more than makeup for comfort. I'd be fine with standing and holding on - I've ridden subways for longer than 30 minutes with no problems before.

    The point of the hyperloop is to get from point A-B in the least amount of time possible.
