A recovery vehicle moves a sled down a track after a test of a Hyperloop One propulsion system, Wednesday, May 11, 2016, in North Las Vegas, Nev.

Virgin Hyperloop successfully tested its latest ultrafast transportation technology, the HyperLoop, with human passengers in November, notching a first in a field crowded with other contenders.

Columbus transportation officials have been working with the company since 2017 in hopes of being part of the Hyperloop MidWest hub.

Today on Tech Tuesday on All Sides with Ann Fisher, we envision a new transportation system that hurls passengers in pods through tubes at 700 mph.
