Virgin's investment is part of Hyperloop One's recently announced $85m series B round announced just a few weeks ago, bringing total funding to $245m. It's now "Virgin Hyperloop One", following an investment by Richard Branson's Virgin Group. The pod will lift above the track using magnetic levitation and glide at airline speeds for long distances due to ultra-low aerodynamic drag. The pod magnetically levitates inside the tube in near-vacuum, without any air resistance. The company aims to build a high-speed test facility in 2019, according to Hardt co-founder Tim Houter.

This isn't the first futuristic and unproven transportation project for Virgin Group. The company plans to work with a variety of operators globally.
