Three Teams Qualify for Tube Test in Hyperloop Pod Competition

[video=youtube;ucP2t7-puu8]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ucP2t7-puu8[/video]

Elon Musk's hyperloop dream began to take shape in reality last weekend as 27 teams, including six from outside the United States, participated in a competition to create the mass transit vehicle of the future.
The competition in Hawthorne, California, sponsored by SpaceX, which Musk founded, attracted teams made up mostly of students who created pods designed to run on hyperloop transportation systems.
In a hyperloop system, the vehicles - or pods - travel in a vacuum in tubes at speeds close to the speed of sound. To do that, the pods have to be suspended slightly off the ground, typically by riding on a magnetic field.

For its competition, SpaceX built a test chamber that was three-quarters of a mile long and six feet wide. The company capped the speed at which a pod could go at around 50 miles per hour.
In order to get to test its pod in the vacuum chamber, a team had to pass a rigorous 101-point review. Only three teams could do that: Delft University of Technology of The Netherlands; Technical University of Munich, Germany; and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Operating in a vacuum is important to hyperloop systems because it reduces friction. "Hyperloop is all about friction," said Adonios Karpetis, a faculty advisor to the Texas A&M aerospace team, which competed at the event. "You have to minimize the air friction in the tube," he told TechNewsWorld.
By creating a vacuum or near-vacuum in the tube, the drag of the vehicle is nearly eliminated, which allows it to reach tremendous speeds, as high as 700 miles per hour. By contrast, a Boeing 747 has a cruising speed of 570 miles per hour. "It's like operating a ground-based vehicle at an altitude of 100,000 feet where the air is very thin," said Rick Williams, an advisor to Auburn University's hyperloop team. A hyperloop vehicle has an advantage over an aircraft, though. "Once the vehicle reaches its cruising speed, it will coast for a long ways because of the minimal drag," Williams told TechNewsWorld. "From an energy standpoint, it's going to be significantly lower," he said.

SUMMARY:


PART ONE OF A THREE PART REVIEW SERIES
"THE FIRST INSTALLMENT IS QUITE UNDERWHELMING!"

With The Witcher Franchise now sitting side by side with the likes of Mass Effect & Dragon Age, I felt like it was time to do another three part review series for those of you who might not have experienced all three installments, enjoyed the benefits of knowing the lore from the very beginning to the end, gone through character transfers from start to finish, or actually experienced what the first installment in the series was like - back when you went to the store and bought PC games on CD. While the bulk of my review is based on the original version, I also have the enhanced edition and will include elements from that as well in the review. Essentially, the enhanced version provides some optimizations, in-game "ease of life" type touch ups, and some digital comics along with another game mode.​

THE GAMEPLAY EXPERIENCE:

CD PROJEKT RED, the developer behind The Witcher Franchise, very obviously showed the gaming world right out of the gate that they were not going to spare any expense when it came to the game, the lore, and the software licensing behind the creation of the game. The first installment of the game was originally released in 2008, and for those that have played the second and third installments - they would most likely consider the first installment practically another game in itself. All the hallmarks that make The Witcher unique are here: meditation, potion brewing / crafting, the combat system, extensive control scheme, and of course the lore. With parts of the game having an almost Diablo "God View" Camera angle, the option to play "Mouse Only", and other tid bits related to the inventory system - this game feels very strange compared with other RPGS in the genre.

You have to be really dedicated to the lore and enjoy the outside elements of the game to fall in love - because with glitches and bugs galore, it's no surprise they released an enhanced edition via Steam, in order to give the original installment a little tender love and care. This game is nothing like the Mass Effect or Dragon Age recipe, where they built upon the pre-existing base fundamentals of the game. After part one, they did an aggressive overhaul to many mechanics of the game, while maintaining the elements that made the game unique in terms of mechanics like meditation and potion usage in combat and quests.
All in all, if you really love the lore and want to experience the full spectrum of The Witcher universe - enjoy!... But for Part 2 & 3 Players - beware! This is not the game you think it is.​


----------


STRONG POINTS OF THE GAME:

- A Fresh World - Full Of Lore, Politics, & Adult Themed Fantasy Scenarios.​
- The Enhanced Edition provides some addon's like digital comics & "Adventure Mode"​
- For a game released in 2008, the movie clips are well made and help move the story along.​


----------


WEAK POINTS OF THE GAME:

- Glitches & bugs galore if your playing on the original PC CD-ROM.​
- Overall camera control is strange & sometimes unnerving.​
- The control scheme is excessive - how could you play this without macros?​
