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?

    Elon Musk has proven what can be done with his new NON Fosil fuel cars

    He has made the USA car industry " We can't do it " to a new American Can Do Sprite.
    His office has advised me that a third generation car is on the drafting table as I speak
    Should sell for about 40.000 dollars when released. My reply to his e mail was Please let
    me be the first to buy on..........ENOUGH WITH THE OIL CARTEL AND COMPANIES
    He has made them look like Fools Greedy Fools , By the way his cars are beautiful.
