New, Yet Familiar.
Hyperloop will be unlike any other form of transportation. Everything from the departure frequency and trip duration to the station experience, ticketing and boarding procedures, seating configurations, and mobility within the cabin is the sum of an entirely new experience.
Human beings naturally crave what's familiar. Anything that seems new or different triggers our fear of the unknown; this 'fight or flight' response has evolved over biology's history to protect humans against perceived threats. To build a bridge between the known and the unknown, Teague's pod design would embrace the "new" aspects of Hyperloop while orienting and comforting passengers with a sense of familiarity.
