Have you ever just laid in bed contemplating what teleportation would be like? The thought that you could just get somewhere, without actually having to go through the nuisance of getting there. Now there's a hotel concept that comes pretty close, where you can travel between 13 different cities without ever having to leave your room.
The Hyperloop Hotel is a concept designed by graduate architecture student Brendan Siebrecht, and would allow hotel guests to travel between Austin, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Nashville, New York City, Portland, San Francisco, Santa Fe, Seattle and Washington, DC all while in their room. With this unique transit system, the rooms would be pod-like vehicles that get propelled through a reduced-pressure tube, allowing you to visit even multiple cities in one day.
Not surprisingly, it could take a little while before the hotel becomes a reality, with Siebrecht estimating five to ten years from now. When it does happen, though, guests will pay a flat fee of $1,200 on top of the usual hotel room rate to travel between the various cities. When you think about it, that's not a bad price tag considering you never have to board a plane or a train — time is money, after all.
