A ‘flying train’ that can travel at 1000km/h has been designed by students in Valencia.
The group of budding inventors reached the final of the Hyperloop Pod high-speed transport competition, set up by US billionaire businessman Elon Musk.
Five students from the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV) have been working on the prototype for over a year, and have now been joined in the project by 25 other students.
The design is a pod two metres long and 1.5 metres high, which can travel through a near-vacuum tube faster than an aeroplane.
They will present the model at the final Hyperloop trials this summer in Los Angeles.
