Nor does it say how Elon Musk's Hyperloop will work...
this is neither design nor news.
Design isn't about making things look pretty. Design is about solving problems.
Elon Musk may not be a graphic or web designer, but he's been designing solutions for space travel and fuel efficient driving for a while now. I'd argue that Elon's designing a commuting solution with hyperloop, and if it delivers what he's promised so far, it will be groundbreaking.
I'd love to see more design posts on DN outside of communication design.
mechanical engineering is not design. let's be real here.
Dude. Design is about solving problems just as much as any other profession. Thats why people get paid to do them. We don't "solve problems", we "solve communication problems using visual queues". Thats it.
