The traveller's experience: unique, innovative and comfortable
Elisava's students have considered all the details to make a totally airtight carriage a comfortable place that transmits an innovative experience that reconciles the digital and technological world with convenience and comfort.
The lighting in the salon blends in with the light outside the capsule. If it is 12 noon outside, the capsule will be fully illuminated, recreating sunlight; if it is 10 p.m., the lights will be much dimmer. Another important element is the creation of a unique atmosphere inside the capsule through a luminous graphic on the sides of the train that reflects the outside landscape through colours, shapes and textures.
In addition, the panoramic roof is another way of providing light and simulating a realistic landscape. The ceiling is formed by an artificial skylight, a group of state-of-the-art televisions that simulate the sky and are characterised by a curvature adapted to the exterior walls of the capsule's interior. These screens are capable of projecting 4K images of the best quality on the market today, for example, a blue sky, a foggy forest or sandy mountains.
In terms of the passenger's dining experience, users will experience an innovative, futuristic and high quality experience. Bearing in mind that the future Hyperloop capsule will not have a crew service during its journeys, the students have created an automated distribution system for the delivery of food and drink by means of transport capsules, which reach the user by means of tubes located on the sides of the salon.
New generations that design the future
According to Javier Peña, Elisava General Director and Scientist, “Having HyperloopTT as a collaborating company is a satisfaction and an opportunity for the students to work on real challenges launched by an innovative company and a world leader in its sector.”
HyperloopTT CEO, Andrés de Léon, has highlighted “the high level of the proposals made by Elisava students and the professionalism of the final results, as well as the opportunity to work together with the new generations who are designing the future.”.
For their part, project tutors Daria de Seta, Head of Space Design at the faculty, and Carla Zollinger have stood out “the innovative methodological work that started with creative prototypes based on sensory concepts and incorporating references from art, psychology, health and furniture design.”
