Tesla will have battery swapping and still waiting for Hyperloop details

Tesla is supposed to have a battery swapping technology demonstration tonight.

The Hyperloop details are to be released after the Tesla June 20th announcement, so maybe tomorrow or during the coming week.

The internet’s leading theory is that it’s got to be some kind of pressurized tube (akin to old-school mailroom shoots), filled with air (so, not a vacuum), that uses maglev technology (magnets instead of wheels) to propel a container of humans through a tube or tunnel, perhaps in a constant loop between the two cities.

The Hyperloop is supposed to be ten times cheaper than high speed rail.
