Frank Gruber, CEO of Tech.co and Las Vegas resident, attended the first public propulsion test of Hyperloop One at their test site in northern Las Vegas.
“This was the first successful public test of this nature for the company that just yesterday announced a name change, new partners, and a new round of funding,” wrote Gruber. “The grandstands were filled with media, investors, and partners for this historic test. The video shows the successful propulsion open-air test (POAT) that accelerated at 2 g-force before hitting a patch of sand about 100 yards or so down the track.”
“The team led by CEO Rob Floyd, Cofounder Shervin Pishevar, and CTO Brogan BamBrogan shared their thanks for the Nevada government for helping to make this historic day possible,” wrote Gruber.
