The story about Elon Musk and his design for a “hyperloop” instantly sparked an internal curiosity. Not simply regarding its logistics (seems logical and realistic), but more so about the welcome mat that is anxiously waiting to be stepped on by the man or woman who invents the next preeminent transportation technology. Currently, this mat is unguarded and is pining for the next great innovative masterpiece to transform the means by which the public travels from Point A to Point B without an exhaustive layover in the overcrowded Point C.
This next breakthrough will all but certainly strive for the luxury, status and environment that was omnipresent on Pan-Am during their prime and other airlines before some fliers began stepping onto those powerfully fast jets in their bathroom attire whilst also forgetting their manners in the very same closet where their ironed clothes are hanging, desperately yearning for a day or night out (this is not everybody of course, but we all know there are those who do this and who fit this description all too well…).
Who will design the breakthrough travel technology that will define the forthcoming decades of the 21st century?
The infinitely inspiring element of this question is the reality that we live in an era of unprecedented possibilities where an individual can change history and society with a random, crazy idea concocted in a garage or with a random sketch in a notebook.
What will he or she dream up and ultimately create? Is it the “Hyperloop?”
Like most everybody else, I’m clicking my trusty pen, ready to research, brainstorm and scribble various thoughts on some blank sheets of paper. Ultimately, I’m remaining hopeful that lightning will strike a series of words 3/4 the way down or on a daring shape drawn in the upper right hand corner as to permit myself to proudly shout, “eureka!”
“We were lucky enough to grow up in an environment where there was always much encouragement to children to pursue intellectual interests; to investigate what ever aroused curiosity.”
My Mom always says that if you dress sloppy, you think sloppy.
For this massive venture, I will be sure to wear an ironed white buttoned down shirt, a sharp tie, a slim black waistcoat and some wildly colorful board shorts.
The hope being I will find grand inspiration with my formal attire serving as a tribute to past thinkers and inventors while simultaneously channeling the random, crazy idea portion of my brain with entertainingly imaginative shorts.
The best part about it is if lightning does in fact strike, I’ll only need to grab a pair of black pants and shoes and I’ll be all ready for the maiden voyage.
P.S. Thank you for reading this post and please come back again!
