The Hyperloop and Flying Cars: Truth or Fiction

Monday, March 14
9:30AM - 10:30AM

Westin Austin Downtown
Continental 1-2
310 E 5th ST

For over 100 years pioneers have developed new advancements in rail, vehicle and aircraft transport. The goal is to travel higher, faster and farther than before. The first flying car was introduced in 1917 but has not evolved to a point of mass production. Trains have morphed from early hauling mechanisms to new forms of high speed transport.

Now a new era of invention, engineering, art and science have introduced two groundbreaking forms of transportation: the Hyperloop and the new flying car.

Join Dr. John Suh of Hyundai Ventures and Chris Barker of The C3 Group as they discuss the merits/possibilities of the Hyperloop and the flying car as viable options for future transport.
