HyperLoop Virtual Reality Experience with NOACA and HyperLoop Transportaion Technologies


Cleveland, OH (April 5, 2018) -- The Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency (NOACA) and Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT - HyperloopTT) will bring a virtual reality Hyperloop experience to the Cleveland International Film Festival April 6 through 8. 

The Hyperloop experience will help attendees get a sense of what it’s like to travel by Hyperloop. Through VR, viewers will get to experience what it’s like to travel in the Hyperloop from station to destination.
Videos will be displayed throughout the day to help educate people in Northeast Ohio on what Hyperloop transportation is and how it would potentially change the way people travel.

The virtual reality experience will be available on Tower City Center’s grand concourse (across from the fountain) during the coming weekend.  The experience will be open to the public from noon to 5 p.m. on Friday, April 6; 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 7; and noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday, April 8.

This event is being produced with the help of CLEVR (Cleveland Virtual Reality Community). CLEVR is a nonprofit organization with a mission to improve Cleveland's socioeconomic conditions by channeling the ingenuity of Clevelanders towards the creation of high demand AR/VR based content, products and services.  For more information on CLEVR's mission to build the VRBELT please visit www.clevrcommunity.org

HTT and NOACA signed an official public-private partnership agreement in February and announced plans to undertake a $1.2 million engineering study to examine the feasibility of a Great Lakes Hyperloop connecting Cleveland to Chicago.

“The Great Lakes megaregion represents a $15 billion transportation market, with tens of millions of tons of cargo and millions of passengers connecting to the cities within the region every year,” said Grace Gallucci, Executive Director of NOACA. “Technologies like the Hyperloop can take our over-stressed infrastructure into the 21st century and beyond.”
