Elon Musk's proposed Hyperloop

Elon Musk is proposing a hyperloop for boats, planes, automobiles, and trains. He states he can deliver a system of train transport from LA to SF in 30 minutes (343 miles) at 685 MPH. He claims this can be done for 6 billion or one tenth of the proposed cost of the high speed rail being considered.

Is this possible .... would you ride this? He says facts will be made available in August 2013.

What do you think of this proposal? Should he be considered for a TED Talk? Would you watch it?

    Jul 16 2013: I think that is what we have leaders for so I would make it mandatory for Jerry Brown, Barbara Boxer, Nancy Pelosi, Diane Feinstein, Vilagrosa, Willie Brown, et. al.

    As I say to all leaders: I will behind you all the way. In other words YOU take point.
