New York To L.A. In 45 Minutes? This Idea Sucks, Literally [Video]

Traveling from New York to Los Angeles is about 5 and half hours. Imagine traveling from New York to L.A. in 45 minutes. With some very familiar technology that might soon be possible. What is the technology? Think about your drive through banking terminals. Could you imagine climbing in a container, similar to the one you use at the bank, and being sucked across the country?

The idea is a little more complicated than sending your deposit from the parking lot into the teller. There would be suction and magnets to create thrust and reduce friction. Proponents of the idea say high speed tubes could be built for a fraction of the cost of high speed rail.

As someone who doesn’t enjoy flying I think this might be an interesting way to travel. Then again I think of the times that my deposit or banking transaction has gotten stuck in the system and I would sure hate to be stuck in a tube somewhere in Far West Texas during the Summer.
